Garden Grants for Presbyterian Congregations.

New Small Grants Program for PC(USA) Congregations Doing Faith-Based Initiatives to Transform the Food System

The Presbyterian Hunger Program is encouraged by the emergence of the many faith-based initiatives sprouting up around the country to bring resilience to our food system, and health to people and God’s Creation. These efforts often engage people of all ages, result in greater food security, give people decision-making power over their food, increase healthy eating, create jobs and local economic growth, support local family farmers, use land ecologically, raise awareness about local and global hunger and poverty, and encourage a view of food as sacred and as a right for all people. When done well, such initiatives are wonderful ways to build relationships,community and power. We are eager to support this work as one small way we can help build God’s vision of a New Heaven and New Earth.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Grants are for $100-$1,000 with a total of $20,000 available for the year. Turn-around for approved grants will be less than four weeks.
