Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $2,000 to Utah individuals, nonprofit community groups, and locally-owned small businesses for food-related projects that promote fair, clean, good food, cultural diversity, and conviviality. Priority will be given for projects that help enhance or increase local skills and capacity, the availability of locally produced foods (especially artisanal, Ark of Taste, wildcrafted, heirloom, or sustainably produced), regional and cultural food traditions, and taste or youth education.

Every year, Slow Food Utah takes applications from the community for micro-grants. This program was created in order to fill gaps that we see in traditional funding sources for local food-related projects, especially for small-scale food growers and producers, community innovators, and educators.

Slow Food Utah is committed to building the connections between all the facets of the state’s food culture. Farmers, ranchers, producers, chefs, and consumers equally share a place at the Slow Food Utah table. SlowFood Utah recognizes the importance of these local efforts and the existing food traditions from various communities and cultures that make up the state’s heritage and its future. It is through food and community that these stories are best shared and understood.

In the past, Slow Food Utah has provided funding for school gardens, the building of a goat barn, the purchase of a tractor, seeds and greenhouse supplies, new baby piglets, and much more.
