Grants boost food festival

Have your say

A SECOND Sheffield Food Festival will take place this summer between July 4 and 10 – with small grants available for community groups wanting to take part.

Cash support of up to £1,500 will be available for food-related events to be held across the city, from a pot of £10,000.

The deadline for applications is noon on Friday, May 13.

Over the course of the week the Sheffield Food Festival team will be serving up a full menu of events to celebrate food in the city.

The aim will be to showcase and celebrate Sheffield’s food culture, food heroes and food diversity, while supporting and promoting the city’s thriving local food economy.

Activities will also educate people on issues such as healthy choices, home cooking, and sustainable food.
