2015 Food Fund RFP Released.
The Indy Food Council is pleased to announce the third round of the Indy Food Fund. The Indy Food Fund is a small grant and loan program designed to support catalytic food related projects in Marion County. This year the fund will prioritize applicants who can show they are working towards one of more of the following initiatives as outlined as priorities by the council:
- Improve access to healthy and local food across all ages and demographics.
- Increase the demand for local food in Indy by promoting local options, expanding existing local food production efforts and developing new ones, and fostering institutional procurement.
- Increase the availability and effectiveness of educational and community-based programs designed to improve healthy eating habits in the community.
Applicants who can effectively show how the project will work towards meeting the above outlined initiatives are encouraged to apply. In order to explain the food fund process and help applicants understand selection committee criteria, the council will host two information sessions on Wednesday, February 25th. Both sessions will take place at The Platform which is located at 202 E. Market St. The first session will be at 12pm and the second will take place at 5:30pm.
