Food insecurity—the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food—is an ongoing problem facing many San Diego County residents which has only been exacerbated by the pandemic.
Lower-income communities and communities of color disproportionately face limited access to fresh, healthy, and culturally-appropriate food.
For this funding cycle, the San Diego Women’s Foundation (SDWF) will grant funding to organizations working towards long-term solutions to reduce food insecurity in these communities.
Utilize This Offer
1. Organizations that are exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Organizations working with a fiscal sponsor (an organization willing to administer the grant if awarded) that meet these criteria are also eligible.
2. Organization located in or providing services to San Diego County.
3. Each applicant organization may submit only one proposal per grant program area.
Collaborative proposals, in which two or more organizations share funding and work jointly to implement a program or connected services, are eligible for funding.
We are accepting letters of inquiry from nonprofit organizations working towards long-term, sustainable, and community-centered solutions to alleviate food insecurity in areas with low-access to fresh, healthy, and culturally-appropriate food.
We will prioritize organizations that bring community voices to this work and we encourage coordinated and collaborative efforts across organizations.
