Slow Food Utah
Now Accepting Micro-grant Applications
Deadline, January 31, 2018
Every year, Slow Food Utah takes applications from the community for micro-grants. This program was created in order to fill gaps that we see in traditional funding sources for local food-related projects, especially for small-scale food growers and producers, community innovators, and educators.
In the past we have funded school gardens, the building of a goat barn, purchase of a tractor, seeds and greenhouse supplies, new baby piglets, and much more. All this is possible with help from our donors and our annual fundraising event, the Feast of Five Senses.
Who can apply for a grant?
Any individual, small business, or non-profit committed to Slow Food International principles of good, clean, fair food, cultural diversity, and conviviality. Previous grant recipients may apply again, however due to limited funds, applications from new projects may be given priority.
What kinds of projects qualify?
High priorities include projects that help increase or enhance:
- local skills and capacity,
- the availability of locally produced foods
(especially artisanal, Ark of Taste, wildcrafted, heirloom, or sustainably produced),
- regional and cultural food traditions,
- taste or youth education.
How do I apply?
Download a copy of the application form and follow the detailed instructions. While we must be careful stewards of our limited funding, we don’t mean for this to be a burdensome process. If you have any questions or need help, please don’t hesitate to contact us. The application form and more information can be found by CLICKING HERE.
