They aim to support work that produces higher quality food in ways that are better for people, the environment and livestock.
Initiatives that raise awareness and promote and demonstrate reduced usage of harmful pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics and fossil fuels.
They seek to stimulate community involvement in food production and support the development of a more positive policy position. And also encourage organisations from across the spectrum of food interests to work more closely together to address system-wide issues.
There is no maximum grant amount. However, the Foundation makes only a small number of grants in excess of £500,000 and it is unusual for the Foundation to give a grant of this size or larger to an organisation with which it does not already have a relationship.
Funding priorities are: Local innovation in alternative approaches, Food and wellbeing, and Working towards a more coherent food sector.
