Grants & Opportunities

In our ongoing response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Food Bank of Central New York is able to offer additional funding opportunities to support partnered food programs during this time period. 

From now until Wednesday, March 31, 2021, we will be accepting applications for financial assistance to support food procurement and equipment/supply purchases. These funds will be used to offset the increased need for food distribution activities caused by the pandemic. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Awards will be made based on a demonstration of need through the completion of the application process. Applications are welcome from any Food Bank partner.

Food funds will be issued as a line of credit on the applicant agency’s account when the award is granted. Award notifications and grant agreements for equipment and supply funding will be emailed to the email address provided in the application. Grant agreements for equipment and supply funding must be returned before allocation of funds. Questions about this funding opportunity may be directed to the Food Bank’s Agency Relations staff by calling (315) 437-1899 or by email here
