Walmart.org has issued an RFP seeking Letters of Intent for community-based programs that use a new approach to increase access to healthier foods in regions and/or for populations that experience disproportionate rates of food insecurity. This program seeks to better understand new trends, opportunities, and breakthrough ideas at the community level. The focus of this opportunity is to reach beyond incremental change within traditional food access programs and to explore ideas and projects that influence the future trajectory of improving healthier food access for households experiencing disproportionate rates of food insecurity. Grants will be awarded to organizations whose project budgets range from $300,000 to $750,000 for the two-year project period. Approximately $5 million in funding is available for all projects under this RFP.
Letters of Intent are due by September 17, 2019.
