Bristol Local Food Fund is now open for applications

By Bristol Local Food Fund

From Tuesday 4 October the BLFF Citizens Panel participatory grantmaking scheme will be open for applications. 

Open to incorporated and non-incorporated groups across areas most at risk of food insecurity, the fund is designed to support charitable and community activities, projects and services that improve or maintain access to good quality, affordable, culturally appropriate food in the city of Bristol.

Incorporated groups such as charities, community interest companies, community benefit societies, and non-incorporated groups with a proven record of providing services within a community or location can apply.

The grant can fund any cost related to the activity, including resources such as ingredients for healthy meals and equipment. It can also fund core activity costs such as rent, staff costs, volunteer expenses and transport costs.

Bristol Local Food Fund’s citizens panel – all who have lived experience of food insecurity – will be deciding which groups receive the funding. The participatory grantmaking programme will be open from 9am Tuesday 4 October until 8am on Monday 13 November.

Find out more about the fund and how to apply on the Bristol Local Food Fund website. If you have questions or need some help with the application process, please contact Lucy at or on 07788 214667.
