Did you know that individuals who experience food insecurity are two times more food insecure if they smoke daily? The NBATC wants to bring your attention to programs that support greater food security in New Brunswick.
The Community Food Action Program or CFA grant program can provide up to $5,000 to support community-led solutions to help improve healthy eating in New Brunswick by creating greater food security at the community level. Typical actions that are funded through this program include community gardens, community kitchens, bulk buying clubs, farmer’s markets, and food related education programs.
To be considered for funding your initiative must contribute to the three goals of the Community Food Action Program:
- Increase access to healthy food
- Increase food knowledge and skills
- Strengthen your community’s ability to create greater food security for all
Important to note: Proposed projects and initiatives must be able to follow public health requirements during COVID-19.
