Campus participant grant opportunity

Carolinas College Hunger Summit
Mini-grant Application

To strengthen the ability for campus communities to respond to the challenge of hunger and food insecurity, the Summit’s Planning Committee has secured a pool of $9,000 to support up to six mini-grants.  The grant opportunity is divided into three categories with up to 2 grants being provided under each category ranging from $500 to $3,000.  

It is our hope that this modest grant opportunity will create new thinking and creative solutions.  Thank you for applying and good luck!


  • Any college or university with a representative attending is eligible to apply.  Payment of registration is not an acceptable substitution for actual attendance at the Summit.

  • Each college or university may only apply under one of the categories.  Please see the other instructions for further details.

  • Complete all questions on the application.

  • Submit your application by no later than Friday, October 4th at midnight.

  • Decisions on the grants will be done through a blind evaluation completed by individuals without affiliation to a specific college or university.  Recipients will receive the funds in a single payment by the end of October 2019.  A maximum two-page report on the use of the funds is required to be submitted by the end of April 2020.  Guidelines for the report will be provided to the recipients and will be based on the focus of the project funded.

  • Submission of the grant implies the following:

    • The institution will use the funds exclusively for the intended purpose outlined in this application.

    • The institution will not use any of the funds to benefit any single individual except as may be outlined in this application.

    • The institution, if funded, gives permission to Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC and Feeding The Carolinas to share non-financial information outlined in the grant proposal and the results of the project for which the application is being submitted.

*This grant opportunity is only available to college campus participants.
