NIFA Invests $4.8M in Community Food Projects

The primary goals of the Community Food Projects (CFP) Competitive Grant Program are to meet the food needs of low-income individuals through food distribution, community outreach to assist in participation in federally assisted nutrition programs, or improve access to food as part of a comprehensive service. CFP aims at increasing the self-reliance of communities in providing for the food needs of the communities; and promoting comprehensive responses to local food access, farm, and nutrition issues. CFP projects are designed to meet specific state, tribal, local or neighborhood food and agricultural needs.  Funded projects demonstrate alignment between communities in need and innovative practices to increase in food access, marketing and distribution opportunities, and sustainably reduce food and nutrition insecurity.
