Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is soliciting applications from rural school districts, food banks, Tribal communities, faith-based organizations, and other community-based providers seeking support in their efforts to alleviate child hunger and food insecurity. Applications can come from a single organization or any lead organization representing a partnership effort.
Through this project, Share Our Strength seeks to identify, document, and better understand promising practices within rural communities that achieve the following outcomes:
- Increased food security among children
- Increased participation in one or more federal Child Nutrition Programs
- Decreased stigma associated with accessing federal Child Nutrition Programs and/or additional food assistance resources
- Broad-based community engagement to understand and address community needs related to child food security, as well as sustained partnerships to enable meaningful interventions over time
Share Our Strength will prioritize grant funds to organizations located within and projects serving Communities of Color* and historically marginalized populations, including Tribal communities and immigrant populations. Additionally, we will prioritize funding to rural communities located within nonmetro counties designated as persistently poor, according to Census and/or American Community Survey data.
Grant requests will be considered for amounts up to $50,000.
Please complete all fields in the form below to submit an inquiry form that includes limited details about your proposed project. Share Our Strength staff will then reach out to qualifying applicants with an invitation to submit a full project proposal. Inquiry forms must be submitted no later than 8pm Eastern on Wednesday, November 18.
