Spokane Food Policy Council Mini-Grant Application
The Spokane Food Policy Council is awarding four grants up to $5,000 each to advance the goals of the Regional Food Action Plan. The goals are farmland preservation, increasing local food processing, healthy food for all, and reducing food waste. Learn more about the Spokane Regional Food Action Plan.

The Regional Food Action Plan was completed in 2022 and was given support by the Spokane City Council as a resolution. More than 350 food system stakeholders informed the plan by responding to a community food survey and participating in community forums in 2020. These stakeholders included producers, processors, distributors, consumers, and waste managers.
The mini-grants will advance the goals of the Regional Food Action Plan and award local food system leaders who are carrying out this work. These grants may support new or existing food system work.
Applications are due Friday, October 13th. Decisions will be made by early-November. If you are selected as a grant recipient, a representative from your organization is expected to attend a Spokane Food Policy Council meeting on Tuesday, November 14th at 4pm.
The Spokane Food Policy Council seeks to advance policies and initiatives that foster a resilient food system in the Spokane area; one that is healthy and equitable for its citizens, economy and environment.
