The Never Hungry Again campaign has this week launched its next round of funding, for organisations who are able to provide activities and food within local communities. A vital funding source for those who are struggling now more than ever with the financial impacts of Covid.
If you are involved in a local volunteer or community group, please do think about applying for funding and join in this huge movement of kindness.
The Never Hungry Again campaign came from Calderdale’s response to national calls to extend free school meals beyond term times. The aim of the campaign is to end child hunger in the borough.
This fund is now open for organisations to apply for up to £5,000 (up to £10,000 in exceptional cases) to support food poverty work in these areas:
- Prevention – working with children and families to encourage active lifestyles, health and wellbeing
- Intervention – providing emergency food services
- Resilience – supporting a reduction in reliance on food support by providing holistic support services e.g. employment, money management etc.
The deadline for funds is Thursday 7th Jan 10am but early applications are welcomed.
