What are Community
Food Projects?

The Community Food Projects (CFP) competitive grants program awards grants to eligible nonprofits, tribal organizations, and food program service providers to promote self-sufficiency and increase food security in low-income communities by developing comprehensive, community-based solutions. Projects vary in scope, ranging from community gardens with market stands to marketing and consumer cooperatives. Note that all CFPs must involve low-income participants. 

How ISED can help your project

ISED can support the implementation of your CFP-funded project with (a) written materials and webinars; (b) participation in our partner Food System Leadership Network’s communities of practice; (c) annual meetings and conferences, and (d) with one-on-one assistance. We seek to be responsive to many of your needs but may direct you to NIFA for questions related to the technical aspects such as matching funds documentation, reporting, leadership changes, or financial management of your grant.
