The Coalfields Food Insecurity Response Fund - Phase 2

The Coalfields Food Insecurity Response Fund Phase 2 is now open for new applications.

Priority will be given to organisations that are supporting the most vulnerable with Grants up to £2,500 available.

Examples of the type of services they would like to support are as follows (please note this list is not exhaustive):

Food banks

Food parcels schemes

Meal preparation services (such as packed lunches, meals on wheels, soup kitchens etc.)
