Food by Esmee Fairbairn Foundation #585906

Grants are available to charities and not-for-profit organisations in the UK for projects promoting the important role food plays in wellbeing and that connects people to the food that they eat. Organisations should apply for the amount that they need. There is no maximum grant amount. However, the Foundation makes only a small number of grants in excess of £500,000 and it is unusual for the Foundation to give a grant of this size or larger to an organisation with which it does not already have a relationship. As a guideline, 2014 grants ranged from £6,000 to £1.25 million, although the average was £90,000, with support lasting one to five years.

Proposal
Title
Pulling Together
Description
Freeing 30 families in rural Uganda from food poverty through the use of ox-drawn ploughs to open up hard, sun-baked soil. This initiative enables families to plant more seed in the narrow 'window' between harvest and heavy rains which follow, providing enough food to eat and a surplus to sell, to repeat the process.
