Seed grants to address food access

January 17, 2017 1:22 PM

The City of Madison Food Policy Council announces the 2017 SEED Grant cycle to address food access issues in our community. SEED Grants are small grants designed to support new and recently emerging projects or programs that support access to healthy food in our community.


The City of Madison 2017 Budget includes $50,000 in grant funds to be awarded by the Madison Food Policy Council. The Madison Food Policy Council is encouraging any organization, group, or agency that is devoted to making food more accessible to apply. Any proposal that improves the local food system will be considered. The maximum of any one grant will be limited to $10,000.


Those interested should go to the City of Madison website for the grant application guidelines and application form. Applications are due on Friday, February 24th, 2017 by 1:00pm, and should be submitted to George Reistad, Food Policy Director, at or mailed/hand-delivered to the Mayor's Office at 210 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. Room 403, Madison, WI 53703. Applications submitted via standard mail must be postmarked no later than Wednesday, Feb. 22nd, 2017.


Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to attend a pre-submittal meeting to discuss the grant application and explore potential collaboration opportunities with other organizations in attendance. The pre-submission meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 31, 2016 at 6:00pm at the Catholic Multicultural Center (located at 1862 Beld St., Madison, WI 53713).



"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by [people] who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it.  Impossible is not a fact.  It's an opinion.  Impossible is not a declaration.  It's a dare.  Impossible is potential.  Impossible is temporary.  Impossible is nothing."
