Food For Queers:
Recipient of Libro Community Grant 2021October 1, 2021
Queer Events is pleased to announce Food for Queers has been selected as a recipient of the 2021 Libro Credit Union Community grant, providing the funding necessary for Food for Queers to continue supporting folks within our local 2SLGBTQIA+ community facing food insecurities.
This is a unique opportunity to allow for the implementation of strategic program improvements to immediately build program capacity. Most significantly will be the creation of a part-time Program Coordinator position and financial resources to purchase items for grocery kits and support the program.
This is the first time Queer Events has received any type of funding. We are very grateful to Libro Credit Union for recognizing both the need and value of supporting grassroots community groups, which do not have the same access and privileges afforded to non-profit organisations.
We would like to thank Libro Credit Union for investing in local food accessibility particularly during these challenging times and specifically for actively supporting a grassroots queer-led program serving folks facing food insecurities within the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
We look forward to the continuation of this partnership and are grateful for the funds that enable us to build program capacity in order to ensure that we can continue to provide barrier free access for 2SLGBTQIA+ families and households facing growing food insecurities.
Food for Queers has received funding totaling $20,000 to support the program between October 2021 - September 2022.
- Grocery kit supplies - 14%
- Program & volunteer supports - 8%
- Digital upgrades - 12%
- Program Coordinator Role (35 weeks) - 66%
