Asda Foundation - Feeding Communities Grant- Reminder Early December Deadline

18 November 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

In response to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, Asda Foundation has created the Feeding Communities Grant scheme.

Grants of up to £1,000 can contribute to meals which cost £4.00 or less for those in need in the run up to Christmas. This includes individuals, families, and meals at children's healthy holiday clubs.

The grants can support the following:

  • Food parcel for a family/individual

  • Christmas Hamper (food only)

  • School Holiday Clubs (food only)

  • Soup kitchen/homeless centre (food only)

  • Christmas meal deliver or collection

  • Local Community Centre providing meal deliveries

Not-for-profit registered charities, registered not-for-profit companies, community interest companies and unincorporated clubs or associations in the UK can apply.

The Foundation does not accept applications directly.

Application forms can be obtained from Asda Community Champions, who are based in local Asda stores. Applicants can use the store locator link on the Foundation website to get in touch with their local store and speak to their Community Champion about their project proposal.

Groups who have already received funding from Asda Foundation in 2020 may apply for this grant.

The deadline for applications is 6 December 2020.
