Update: Opportunity Expanding

Since we released this funding opportunity in early January, we have received inquiries from potential applicants and others working in the community whose work aligns with the goals of this opportunity, yet whose organizations don’t quite match all aspects of the stated eligibility criteria. After careful consideration, we have decided to expand both the number of organizations being supported by this grant funding, as well as the eligibility criteria for those seeking an award.


  • The number of funded organizations is being extended from 10 to 14.
  • Eligibility is being expanded to include a focus on rural communities.
  • The eligibility requirement that the organization’s CEO be a member of the community served is being waived.

To accommodate newly eligible or interested applicants, the timeline for this grant opportunity is being extended. A new timeline, along with updated supporting application materials, will be posted on our website later this year. This will include a new link to our online application, which has been deactivated and will re-open when the updated opportunity is released.

We are excited about this opportunity to broaden the impact of this work and look forward to partnering with many great organizations as we work together to expand access to healthy food across the state.
