The Office of Mayor Ethan Berkowitz is pleased to offer the 2nd annual Local Food Mini-Grant Program in conjunction with the Alaska Food Policy Council. The goal of the mini-grant program is to empower Anchorage residents to increase their community’s access to fresh, locally-grown produce. Anchorage residents and community groups can apply for mini-grants of up to $1000 for projects that will improve food security and community resilience. Priority will be given to initiatives that serve low-income neighborhoods. Projects could include improvements to school or community gardens, food waste recovery efforts, fruit tree plantings, classroom indoor growing systems, and much more.
Applications are due June 15, 2019.
