Islington Food Fund (round 3)

This page is for applicants who have submitted an expression of interest for the larger grant of the Islington Food Fund.

Islington Food Partnership and Islington Giving are working in partnership to distribute Islington Food Fund grants. We are inviting applications from existing organisations in the borough, to provide support to those experiencing food insecurity as the impact of the cost-of-living crisis intensifies.

The larger grant is for projects and initiatives that deliver on goals and outcomes in the Islington Food Strategy 2023-2028. In this category of funding, we are particularly interested in addressing the following areas in the food strategy:

  • Identify opportunities to build communal kitchen capacity across the borough.
  • Develop a mechanism to support uptake and maintenance of food cooperatives in the borough.
  • We are also interested in work that helps combat food insecurity for young people. This may include offering opportunities for young people to access and prepare food.

We expect to award about four to five grants under this category. In the second round, we made three grants of £20k each.

Note: You can only apply for one of the categories, not both i.e. small, operational grant or a larger development grant.
