Food Charities Grant Fund

If you run a front-line food aid charity in England, you can apply for a grant of up to £100,000 to help you continue to provide food to the vulnerable.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) will assess applications to the fund in the order they are submitted.

Eligibility to apply

You’re eligible to apply if you:

  • are unable to meet an increased demand for food from vulnerable individuals or supporting charities
  • have the capacity to distribute all of the food purchased under this grant by 9 August 2020
  • started receiving food from FareShare before 23 March 2020

FareShare is already receiving government funding to support the increase in demand to their services as a result of Covid-19 from 23 March 2020.

You can apply for the grant to provide for people:

  • unable to afford food
  • who have moved into temporary accommodation as a result of COVID-19, for example those who have left home due to domestic abuse, newly released prisoners, the newly homeless

This grant is not to provide food for the extremely clinically vulnerable, who are already being supported by government.
