Bristol City Funds is working to transform Bristol by funding solutions that target the causes and effects of inequality. We aim to create positive and transformative change in Bristol by bringing businesses, community organisations, funders and the public sector together to share resources and help address key priorities. One of the City Funds key priorities is No Child Goes Hungry.
The No Child Goes Hungry grant programme is open to community organisations for activities that aim to tackle the underlying causes of child food poverty and poor nutrition in Bristol.
The aim of this funding is to support sustainable change, so funding can be awarded to transform and strengthen local organisations themselves, or it can be for the delivery of activities that will create change for local children and families. These could include but are not limited to projects which help children and families to:
- afford and access healthy food
- understand the benefits of healthy eating and cooking
- consume healthy, nutritious meals at home
- access effective, joined-up community-based services
- have influence over processes, policies and programmes that affect their nutrition and wellbeing
Activities must be additional to and complement those currently in the city.
How to apply
Please read the full guidelines (below) carefully. We have also made available the No Child Goes Hungry Theory of Change, which sets out the kind of change that City Funds hopes to achieve, and a research paper on local child food poverty, carried out on behalf of City Funds.
