Slow Food Utah


Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #143560

Grant Description

Grants to Utah nonprofit organizations, businesses, and individuals for projects to promote local, traditional, and fairly-grown food. Previous uses of funds include building projects, supplies, school gardens, and farm animals. The goal of the program is to fill gaps in traditional funding sources for local food-related projects, especially for small-scale food growers and producers, community innovators, and educators.

Every year, Slow Food Utah takes applications from the community for micro-grants. In the past, Slow Food Utah has funded school gardens, the building of a goat barn, the purchase of a tractor, seeds and greenhouse supplies, new baby piglets, and much more. 

High priorities include projects that help increase or enhance:

  • 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,
  • Taste or youth education.

Priority Criteria:

  • First time applicant
  • Serves a rural, underserved or vulnerable population
  • Serves a Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC) community
  • Lacks access to other resources for support
  • Demonstrated commitment to the Slow Food values.
