Posted on: December 15, 2021

Essex County Council are committed to continue supporting communities most in need and that have been adversely impacted by the Covid-19 crisis and so are pleased to launch the Food Support Fund so that foodbanks, food pantries, community organisations, schools and voluntary groups can provide support to those most in need.
This funding is for the provision of food for families with children and for individuals from across Essex County Council local authority areas who are most in need.
Applications will be accepted for up to £2500. Please ensure that the amount you request in your application reflects the local need and the number of families and individuals that you plan to support.
You will need to tell them how many families and individuals you expect to be able to provide with this funding and over what period.
This funding will run from Friday 10th December 2021 and all grants awarded must be spent by March 31st 2022. They understand that you may need to provide support to a family on more than one occasion during this period but please make this clear in your application.
They request that at least 80% of your grant application to be spent on families with children.
They are keen that everyone who needs it, has access to support during this period and so they will be sharing details of organisations who receive funding through this grant, so that families and individuals are aware of where they can go for support.
Applications will open on Friday 10th December and remain open until Friday 25th February 2022, or until the funding is fully allocated. Their office will be closed for applications during the Christmas period 24th December to 4th January 2022.
