Application Forms should be returned by 11am on Monday 29 August 2022The aim of the fund is to help ensure that everyone across Stirling’s communities has access to nutritious healthy food, in line with Stirling’s Food Framework.

Grants up to £10,000 are available.

The fund builds on work begun last year and seeks to encourage sustainability in local food systems; however, a small allocation is specifically ring-fenced for crisis/emergency food supplies through Food Banks, Larders and similar. Projects should help to deliver local action on at least one of the following priority areas:

  • Improving access to, and promotion of, good quality, healthy and sustainable food
  • Addressing food insecurity; tackling food poverty, diet related ill health, and access to affordable, healthy food
  • Increasing access to food education, particularly in community settings; building community food knowledge, skills, resources, and projects

The fund is open to constituted third sector/community groups, internal Stirling Council Services, and community planning partner public sector agencies delivering eligible projects within Stirling’s communities. 

Before beginning an application please download and read all documents

Projects which are successful in securing the funding must begin before the end of March 2023 and be completed no later than 30 September 2023.
