We are looking for innovative ideas which help hungry families feed themselves and adapt to climate change.

Please ensure you have read the funding criteria before you start your application (visit our website for more information)

This is the concept note stage of the application. We want to understand your idea and project. The deadline for completing this form is 5pm (UK time) on Friday 29th May 2020.

We will let you know whether your initial application has been successful or not by 26th June 2020. If we like your idea, at that point we will ask you to provide more detail in a full proposal, aiming for a funding decision at our September trustee meeting. We recognise many organisations will be involved in responding to COVID-19, our funding is focused on improving food security as we see this as a crucial step in helping communities recover and rebuild following a public health crisis.

We want to know how you plan to test your idea with our funding.
