From Fundraising UK
Unicef UK has launched its first ever domestic emergency response programme, aimed at supporting children in the UK during the coronavirus pandemic.
‘Food Power for Generation Covid’ is a grant-funded programme launched in partnership with food and farming charity Sustain. The joint initiative will help provide the most vulnerable children and their families with access to food during the crisis through providing grants to community food projects. It will run until February 2021.
Unicef UK has established a new partnership with Sustain’s Food Power programme, which launched three years ago to support place-based alliances across the UK in tackling local issues relating to food access and food affordability. ‘Food Power for Generation Covid’ will award grants to community food projects that reach the children and families most in need through Food Power alliances.
Funding will come from funds previously raised from Soccer Aid for Unicef. The first round of grants will be awarded this week.
