Englewood Community Fresh, Healthy Food Access Grant

Whole Cities Foundation and Resident Association of Greater Englewood (R.A.G.E.) have partnered with the Greater Englewood community to offer the second annual Fresh, Healthy Food Access Grant. This opportunity will award $2,000-$8,000 for projects that grow the local food system and increase access to fresh, healthy food in Greater Englewood. 

Grant Selection Process

This year, twelve organizations applied for the Fresh, Healthy Food Access Grant. 

A task force of community leaders from all sectors selected seven groups as finalists to move on to a community voting round. 

During the months of August and September, the Greater Englewood community will cast votes for their top three favorite organizations. The five groups with the most votes will each be awarded a grant at the end of September.
