Small Grants for Schools
The City of Vancouver has provided $25,000 for TEGS to distribute to VSB schools for small project grants in the 2018-2019 school year. If your school’s team is eligible, these small grants are available to help you start-up, expand, or improve school projects in the areas of food production, food waste management, food preparation, food access, food policy, food justice, and other food systems-related teaching and learning activities.
The application form linked here must be received no later than Wednesday, 24 October, at 11:59pm PST.schools-grant-app-2018-19-version24-sept
Please note: The TEGS small grant funding is provided by the City of Vancouver in partnership with the Vancouver School Board, and hence is only available to VSB schools. If you are from a school in British Columbia outside of the Vancouver School Board, please visit Farm to School BC for grant opportunities!
Community Organizations Small Grants
The TEGS project recognizes the valuable role that non-profit organizations play in supporting food literacy education and healthy, sustainable, and equitable school food systems in Vancouver, and wants to continue to involve and support these organizations. Accordingly, grants will be available to non-profits for the 2018-2019 school year, either to continue existing projects and activities or start new ones. There also may be opportunities for non-profit organizations to be involved in professional development activities. Organizations will also have the opportunities to participate in cutting-edge research on school food systems and food literacy education.
