Bulk Food Purchase Subsidy Program
The Bulk Food Purchase Subsidy Program provides a reimbursement for costs incurred by food banks to purchase higher demand non-perishable staples (canned fruit, meat, fish and vegetables, soup, beans, baby food, pasta) or perishable food items (dairy, eggs, protein, fresh produce, frozen products). This fund supports current Alberta Food Banks members. This program is made possible by a generous contribution by CAF America and funds from 7-Eleven.
Alberta Food Banks will contribute funds to eligible food banks to increase their purchasing power of food items.
The funds available in this 2015 program are $10,500. The program funds will be allocated according to a food bank’s size:
- Food banks located in a community of less than 25,000 people are eligible to apply for one reimbursement of up to $500 in 2015. Subsidies available: 21.
- Purchase of higher demand non-perishable staples (canned fruit, meat, fish and vegetables, soup, beans, baby food, pasta).
- Purchase of perishable food items (dairy, eggs, protein, fresh produce, frozen products).
- Purchase of items which have already been covered under another subsidy program
Applications for the 2015 program are due on November 15, 2015.
This grant will be cover costs from August 1 2015 to October 31 2015.
