We have an exciting opportunity for you and your organization!  Would you like to make a difference and help reduce hunger in Portage County?

The Hunger and Poverty Prevention Partnership of Portage County is offering a limited number of grants ($6,000 available) to fund activities that prevent or reduce  hunger.

Grants are available as a result of our annual Empty Bowls events.  These funds are used to develop and sustain programs that both prevent hunger and increase food security.

Prevention: for activities that help prevent hunger, such as:

*Increasing awareness of local hunger issues through community campaigns, media or other projects

*Educating children about hunger

*Collaboratively addressing hunger

*Expand current efforts to increase the impact on hunger prevention

Supplemental Food Assistance:  to assist organizations in meeting food assistance needs in Portage County


The Hunger and Poverty Prevention Partnership must receive all grant applications no later than September 1, 2017.  Incomplete or late proposals will not be considered.

Approval of the grants will be done on October 4, 2017, with notifications to follow.  Grant dollars will be distributed at Empty Bowls on October 28, 2017.  A final report will be required at the August 1, 2018 HPPP meeting.

Submit grant applications to: Jill Hicks, UW-Extension, 146 Strongs Ave, Stevens Point WI 54481

We look forward to hearing from you and partnering with you organization.  Together we can reduce hunger in our community!
