Vancouver Coastal Health supporting community food projects!

Ustlahan Social Society - 2010 Grant Recipients

Vancouver Coastal Health is once again offering their ‘Advancing Urban Agriculture Grants’ to the community. The goal of this grant is to increase food security for all members of the North Shore community while specifically working to improve access to healthy foods for people with low income. Vancouver Coastal Health is offering small grants to advance urban agriculture on the North Shore.

Grants of up to $2,000 will be considered (with one grant of $5,000 available), and must be submitted by March 11th, 2010.

If you’re applying from a school, you’ll need to answer additional questions.

All applications will be considered. However, priority will be given to projects related to the priorities that arose at our Table Matters event held in November, 2010. An ongoing Table Matters working group has chosen the following issues: Food Recovery, Agricultural education for children and youth, Agricultural education for adults, Residential food production, Urban farms and Marketing local/regional food –  click here for the summary.
