Find me on:

Fall Candle in an Article About Food Resources, Food Grants and Food FundingWe thought the best way to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving was to share opportunities related to food.  So we bring you grants that relieve food insecurity, corporations that donate products, even a resource for hungry four-legged friends. While these are all at the national or semi-national level, more options may exist at your regional, state and local levels as well. All headings are links to the organizations' websites. Please have a safe and stress-free holiday!
