This year Food Futures and Valuing Older People are joining forces to offer grants for community food events during the annual Full of Life Festival and Manchester Food and Drink Festival, which takes place Monday 27 September – Monday 11 October 2010.
Grub and Gossip is an opportunity for community groups and organisations to arrange events that bring people from across the generations together using food. By coming together, Food Futures and VOP would like lots of neighbourhoods in the city to get together and are hoping to reach a more diverse range of groups from across Manchester.
There are a limited number of grants available for £100 and £500. Any not for profit organisation in Manchester can apply e.g. community groups, schools, social housing schemes etc. It is hoped to bring the Festival to all neighbourhoods in Manchester so priority will be given to areas that don’t already have an established events calendar.
For further details see below.

Deadline: Friday 30 July 2010
