Community Food Programmes: Request for Proposals

We’re working with a steering committee on two multi-year programmes tackling health inequalities in the local food system.

We’re working with a steering committee made up of community leaders from Lambeth and Southwark on two exciting, multi-year programmes tackling health inequalities in the local food system.

You can view the request for proposals for each of the programmes below. 

Community Food Incubator

You can find the full request for proposals here 

Submit your proposal for an initial grant of £35,000. The grant will allow you to design and test the idea of a Community Food Incubator to help under-represented food entrepreneurs thrive. The grant and optional wrap-around support will also help you to write a detailed proposal to receive follow-on funding from Impact on Urban Health to launch and run the Community Food Incubator in the real world. 

Food Insights Playbook

You can find the full request for proposals here 

Submit your proposal for an initial grant of £35,000. The grant will allow you to design and test the idea of a Food Insights Playbook that provides useful, actionable insights about the changing food tastes, trends and preferences of families. These insights will make it easier for brands to create products, flavours, and packaging that local people will love. The grant and optional wrap-around support will also help you to write a detailed proposal to receive follow-on funding from Impact on Urban Health to launch and run the Food Insights Playbook in the real world.
