FoodCorps’ new Alumni Grant Program is designed to make it easier for our alumni to access the resources they need to remain active members of the good food movement. Alumni can apply for grants to fund their own professional development, to organize service projects, or to provide seed funding for new ventures. We award 4 grants of $500 each during each of our three grant cycles throughout the year. Here’s a snapshot of the projects we funded during our inaugural cycle.
Charles Greenlea, Mississippi ’15 will be using his funds to buy supplies for teaching classes on food and health to middle and high school students in his home town of Atlanta, where he has returned to now that he’s finished his term of service.
Margolit Sands, Massachusetts ’14 is now a full-time fifth grade teacher in Arizona where she is excited to get her classroom growing their own food and integrating garden learning into her curriculum. She’ll be using the funds to engage the school community and start a garden on site just for her class.
Sarah Dixon, North Carolina and New Jersey ’14 will be using her grant to fund a garden opening and kickoff event that will engage a current service member, other local alumni, as well as FoodCorps schools and partner organizations.
Kala Cuerington, Connecticut and California ’14 will be attending the Black Urban Farmers and Growers Conference in Oakland, CA this fall. She will take what she learns at the conference to help her start meaningful conversations at her current organization around equity and race. She hopes to connect with current California service members to engage them on the topic as well.
We accept grant applications on a rolling basis for each individual cycle. If you want to apply for our upcoming round, the next deadline is December 4, 2015. Want to take advantage of this opportunity? Click here to find out more!
