The Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation announces a new, three-year initiative, Diversifying Leadership for Sustainable Food Policy, to build the capacity of ten organizations to promote policies that help communities of color benefit more fully from food and agricultural systems.
This initiative, in partnership with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, encourages people of color led groups to apply for funding to affect food policy change in the public or private sector and at the local or state level. The organizations will received general operating support, training and technical assistance, and networking opportunities. The Request for Proposals is available at www.noyes.org and the deadline for responding is Tuesday, July 18, 2006.
