Newark Fresh, Healthy Food Access Grant

Launched in 2017, this annual, community-determined grant program has partnered with organizations across Newark, in all five wards, that are growing the local food system and increasing access to fresh, healthy food. Whole Cities Foundation offers grant funding between $5,000 and $20,000 to each selected organization, and there is no restriction on the amount of grant funds that can be used for overhead, ongoing expenses, or infrastructure such as purchasing land, salaries, and stipends. 

Learn more about the grant and meet previous community partners and advisory council members here.

Whole Cities’ community-led approach is successful in large part due to the involvement of Team Members. To help Team Members build a better understanding about Whole Cities’ work and approach, assign a one-hour Champion training in Cornerstone when onboarding TMs.
