Essex County Council Half-Term Emergency Foodbank Fund

Essex County Council is committed to supporting communities most in need and that have been adversely impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. Given the immediate need around holiday hunger, ECC has committed an initial £165,000 which will be made available immediately to food banks and community organisations supporting families and individuals who need support with food and essentials.

Organisations can apply for a maximum of £2500. Please ensure that the amount you request in your application reflects the need and the number of individuals and families you will be supporting.

This funding is primarily for the provision of food and essentials, however we recognise that we also need to support the costs to you as an organisation in terms of storage, volunteer expenses and PPE and so we will cover these costs as part of this grant up to 20% of the application costs.
