Food Pantry Blessing Box

A Peacemaking Project by Jaclyn J.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Our community has a high poverty level. Most rely on our community's food pantry donation box for their next meal or a warm coat. The box helps so many people who may struggle to find the necessary items to survive.

Hi Jaclyn,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Best,
Adrian

Hi Jaclyn! Thank you so much for your passion and generosity to those who are down on their luck. Tell us more about your work so far! How many items have you given away through the blessing box? Have you done this alone -- or with a team?

More importantly -- what are you hoping to do next? We'd love to help you in any way we can.
