Tewkesbury Borough Council is keen to hear ideas for new projects that will help residents in need to access food.
The council will be providing funding to support community food projects that help residents of Tewkesbury Borough to access food at little or no cost.
The council hopes to receive suggestions such as community pantries, community fridges, and other innovative ideas. It is particularly interested in hearing about new community projects, but existing projects are also encouraged to apply for support.
Non-profit organisations can apply for up to £5,000 to help run their food projects. Applicants are advised to complete an application form on the council’s website before Friday, 3 February.
Councillor Mary Jordan, Lead Member for Communities said: “We are delighted to launch this fund, particularly at a time when we know some of our residents need a helping hand.
“We know that solutions can often be found at a local level, and this is why we are inviting our communities to put forward their ideas.”

To help residents with rising living costs, the council has also created a cost-of-living webpage to detail the help, advice and support available.
