Ensuring children can access food during the coronavirus crisis
The coronavirus pandemic is the most urgent crisis affecting children since the Second World War, upending children’s lives everywhere, including right here in the UK.
In July 2020, we launched our first ever domestic emergency response, in partnership with Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming, to ensure families can access food through local community projects.
Food Power for Generation Covid is focused on providing small scale grants (£5,000 – £25,000) to community based food banks, food pantries and other similar organisations to ensure children and families have access to the food they need during the crisis period.
Since the summer we have awarded funding to 30 organisations across England, Scotland and Wales, which will reach up to 15,000 vulnerable children until the end of February 2021.
