Oregon Food Bank's FEAST Support Fund (FSF) is a grant program to support local leadership teams as they plan and hold FEAST conversations in their community.
The FSF will provide grantee communities with outreach and organizing support, the FEAST conversation agenda, event facilitation, technical assistance, training opportunities and a mini-grant of up to $5,000 for project implementation.
You must have a team of at least three people to apply to FEAST. Open to communities in Oregon and Clark County, Washington with access to a 501c3 or fiscal sponsorship. Preference will be given to Black, Indigenous, and communities of color, immigrant and refugee communities, LGBTQ+ communities, and rural communities, which have not hosted a FEAST event within the last two years.
Grants up to $5,000 will be awarded for FEAST event(s) and the subsequent projects identified through FEAST conversations. This may include material or infrastructure costs, contract services and event expenses. Communities may receive up to $2,000 in additional funding for FEAST leadership team member support/participation. Oregon Food Bank will supply additional funds for translation and interpretation as needed. Funding cannot be used to fund existing projects. If you have questions, please contact Adriana (she/her) (firstname.lastname@example.org or 971-223-3359).
