Shrewsbury Food Hub community grants to improve access to good food

Shrewsbury Food Hub was recently successful in its funding application to support collaborative community-based pilot projects to improve people’s access to good food.



Shrewsbury Food Hub has 3 grants of £1500 available for pilot projects in Shrewsbury and one grant for a project in Wem for local organisations to work collaboratively to develop and test grassroots projects that can improve access to good food, especially for people struggling to eat well. The grants can be used for a wide range of projects including increasing access to good food, addressing holiday hunger, building cooking and nutritional skills, developing community meals to overcome social isolation, increasing local advice services, or other relevant ideas.


Projects will be supported in at least two different parts of Shrewsbury, starting with Meole Estate and the Harlescott/Sundorne area. If you have ideas but aren’t in that geographical area, please get in touch.


If you would like to find out more please come along to one of our open meetings:


· The Meet Place, Meole Brace 2nd July 2-4

· Riversway Elim Church, Harlescott 10th July 1-3


Later in the year the project in Wem will explore the issues of access to food in a rural area, and a meeting in Wem will be organised in collaboration with local groups in September.
