Slow Food Denver is relaunching it’s Micro-Grant Program this spring, a program that supports local, sustainable food projects. Our goal is to provide funding for local growers, producers and community non-profits in the greater Denver area that aim to better Colorado’s food system and support the needs of the communities they serve. This year, in its continuing effort to support local growers and producers, Whole Foods Market and GrowLocal Colorado have committed the funding to finance the 2017 Slow Food Denver Micro-Grant program.
This year, Slow Food Denver, Whole Foods Market and Grow Local Colorado will select three finalists from numerous applicants to receive micro-grants from $1,500 to $4,000, furthering the work of food-focused organizations in the Denver Metro area. Each finalist will be invited to share their story at a community dinner organized by Slow Food Denver, where guests will vote to determine how the funding is distributed.
Slow Food members and the community are invited to join the decision making process by attending the dinner.
Applications are due by March 31, 2017.
