Grants & Opportunities

COVID-19 Response Funding Opportunity 
In our ongoing response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Food Bank of Central New York is able to offer additional funding opportunities to support partnered food programs during this time period.

From now until Friday, November 13, 2020, the Food Bank will be accepting applications for financial assistance for food orders placed during the months of November and December. These funds will be used for necessary equipment and supply purchases to offset the increased need for food distribution activities caused by the pandemic.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Please use separate applications for multiple requests or programs. Awards will be made based on a demonstration of need through the completion of the application process. Applications are welcome from any Food Bank partner.

Food funds will be issued as a line of credit on the applicant agency’s account when the award is granted. Awards for equipment or supplies will be issued no later than Wednesday, December 2, 2020. Award notifications and grant agreements for equipment will be emailed to the email address provided in the application.

Questions about this funding opportunity may be directed to the Food Bank’s Agency Relations staff by calling (315) 437-1899 or by email here. To access application materials, please click here.
