Microgrant applications

Microgrant Applications are CLOSED for 2022. 

Annually, Slow Food Utah takes applications from community members for microgrants to support projects in line with our mission of good, clean and fair food for all. This program was created to fill gaps identified 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, the purchase of a tractor, seeds and greenhouse supplies, new baby piglets, and much more. 

Slow Food Utah is a volunteer-run chapter, and the microgrant fund is made possible with help from our donors and our annual fundraising event, the Feast of Five Senses. Make a donation here

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.
