Grant Writer Request #01172023B

  
Primary Purpose:
We are a well established private non-profit organization that grew out of community collaboration to feed the hungry in California. We are seeking a grant writer to aide with federal grants and larger sum grants so that we can fund a our food literacy program that has been on operation for over five years.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
To improve the health and well-being of Merced & Mariposa County residents affected by hunger; through the acquisition, storage, and distribution of nutritious food. To provide and advocate for, increased access to, and consumption of, nutritious fruits, vegetables, nuts, and other foods. To integrate, facilitate and advocate for programs and services that address hunger’s underlying and related issues. To fulfill our mission, we source and distribute food and other products to those in need with the help of partnering agencies and MCFB programs. We also conduct hunger education and awareness campaigns and advocate for public policies that alleviate hunger.

We are a private non-profit organization that grew out of community collaboration to feed the hungry in our community. Since 2004, we have distributed more than 53 million pounds of food. We provide food to nearly 17,000 people every month and in FY 2020 we distributed 9 million meals–that’s more than 8.4 million pounds of food. Our team collects food from hundreds of resources, which – with the help of 3,300 volunteers annually – we distribute through a network of more than 100 partner agencies. 92 percent of revenue raised goes directly to programs.
Project Description:

Looking for grant to fund a 3-5 year food literacy program. We have found that not only should it be a priority to feed low income families and those that suffer from Food Insecurity, but also to educate them on healthy eating, applying for benefits in the county, and tour around our community. We'd also be interested in a grant to build an emergency Food Reserve Program that would be monies set aside for emergency situations. We have found during these not only do people want food boxes but also gift card program that could go with the boxes that would allow them to purchase home necessities, ie, toiletries, and baby supplies.
