Calling NYC Food Insecurity Fighters—ATE Is Now Accepting Grant Applications For 2015
January 26, 2015 by ATE
2014 was a wonderful, whirlwind year at ATE. We did our homework, got really focused, stayed informed, met some amazing crusaders, raised money and awarded grants to two exemplary organizations working toward greater food security in New York City: Corbin Hill Food Project and PS 84 PTA—whose progress we’ll share in the coming months.
And 2015 looks even tastier!
Thanks to so many generous and enthusiastic supporters (THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!), we are empowered to continue our work, to help educ-ate our community about the issues contributing to the problem; advoc-ate on behalf of the organizations hard at work on a solution, as well as those in need; and cultiv-ate the most innovative, scalable and sustainable programs working to mitig-ate food insecurity across the five boroughs.
Our hope: To see our children, families and communities sati-ate-d and healthy so that they can learn, thrive and break the cycle.
This month, we issued a call for grant applicants on our website. Preliminary proposals, addressing at least one of the major obstacles to food security—lack of money, lack of time, limited access to nutritious food, and unfamiliarity with a variety of ingredients, cooking methods and recipes—will be accepted through March 2. We are particularly interested in the areas of prenatal/early childhood nutrition, as well as projects leveraging technology to amplify reach and action.
Please help us spread the word.
Thanks for being part of our community and helping crea-ate an ample table for everyone.
Happy New Year!
