Funding, Grants and RFPs
Food access is a priority in Baltimore City. 25% of city residents and 30% of all children live in food desert communities which are located all throughout the city. Since poverty and lack of food access go hand in hand, this project is designed to encourage local youth to have an active role in promoting healthy foods, in partnership with local businesses, while gaining valuable employment skills and experience.
Applicants are sought who will recruit, supervise, and pay 6 youth and 3 adults as community nutrition educators. These nutrition educators will implement 4 nutrition education lessons and 1 community conversation in target neighborhoods.
The Health Department is seeking two community grantees as partners. Grantees selected will be notified by 3/1/2017 and will need to start training by 4/1/2017. Funds given are $4,000 in $1,000 increments according to meeting Scope of Service deliverables and project milestones.
Applications are due by: 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 17, 2017.
Information Session: Wednesday, February 8, 2017; Time: 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., 1001 E. Fayette Street (Maxie Collier Conference Room)
