Englewood Community Fresh, Healthy Food Access Grant

Whole Cities Foundation and Resident Association of Greater Englewood (R.A.G.E.) are excited to partner with the Greater Englewood community to offer the second annual Fresh, Healthy Food Access Grant. This opportunity will award $2,000-$8,0000 for projects that grow the local food system and increase access to fresh, healthy food in Greater Englewood. 

“Our association truly enjoyed creating this voting process, because the community had the opportunity to make the decision on who would be awarded the Whole Cities Foundation grant, which is not the typical process. The residents felt empowered that their voice was heard and honored.”                                                                      -  R.A.G.E. President, Asiaha Butler
