Funding available for projects creating healthy food options – May 26

Posted by City of Philadelphia on May 9, 2023

Everyone should have access to fresh, affordable food. Unfortunately, they don’t. Poverty, unemployment, discrimination, and systemic racism make it difficult for many people to buy and eat healthy, nutritious food.

The Philadelphia Food Justice Initiative (PFJI) is working to change that. PFJI provides funding to innovative, community-led projects that strengthen Philadelphia’s food assets and opportunities for individual and collective action to further food justice.

PFJI prioritizes projects led by Black, brown and indigenous people, immigrants, people living with disabilities, and people who have lived experience with health injustice. To date, PFJI has awarded grants to 18 organizations. Sixteen of those organizations are owned or led by Black, brown and indigenous people and 11 are owned or led by women.

Applications due May 26.
