Montgomery County Offers ‘Food Recovery Mini-Grants Program’ to Community Organizations

by Patrick Herron

Organizations can apply independently or in collaboration with other groups. This mini-grant program will strengthen current efforts of the Montgomery County Community Food Rescue (CFR), a food recovery network of Manna Food Center. Applications are due by 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 9.

A pre-application technical assistance conference will be held from 10:30-11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 22. More information and the online application are available online.

“Montgomery County is at its best when neighbors help neighbors at a grassroots community level,” said County Executive Marc Elrich. “These grants will help to directly impact people’s lives. I encourage any eligible organization to apply and help us reduce hunger and food waste in our County.”

Grant applications will be reviewed by an independent committee organized by the Montgomery County Food Council. Funding for the grant program will be provided by the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), with support from the Greater Washington Community Foundation’s Food for Montgomery Fund.

Questions about the application process can be directed to Diana Tato-Niktash, program manager for the Food Security Plan at DHHS, by calling 240-777-3404 or emailing diana.tato-niktash@montgomerycountymd.gov.
