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.
Team Member Resources
Help NWK Team Members learn more about Whole Cities with a variety of resources:
Become a WCF Champion
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.
Community First Grant Program
Help share with Team Members about the CFG program to nominate organizations that they are currently engaged with (or would like to start) to receive a grant from Whole Cities.
