Lunch Clubs Grants Open for Applications

//Lunch Clubs Grants Open for Applications

Leeds Community Foundation, in partnership with Leeds City Council, are pleased to be offering grants to support the vital work of lunch clubs across the city.

These grants are specifically for the running costs of lunch clubs and can support new clubs as well as helping existing ones to continue delivering services.

Your club must run its activities in Leeds and be providing regular hot meals to local older people.

Funding is awarded as a contribution towards running costs and can help with rent, training, meal costs and volunteer expenses.

Please note that this scheme cannot cover day trips, home delivery of meals or additional social activities provided by lunch clubs (you can carry out these activities, but they must be paid for by the club’s other money).

All applications must be submitted by 12 noon on Friday 28 February 2020. You will hear the outcome of your application by mid-April.

For the full criteria and to submit an application, please visit the Leeds Community Foundation website:
