Fresh, Healthy Food Access Grant
Whole Cities partnered with Whole Foods Market Newark to create a grant opportunity serving all five wards of the city.
On March 1st, in celebration of the Newark store opening, eleven organizations were chosen by a community advisory council comprised of leaders from diverse sectors across the city. Grants ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 were awarded to community-led efforts to grow the local food system. A total of $140,000 was awarded, serving mostly community gardens and urban farms!
