Hunger-Free Communities Grants

The United States Department of Agriculture will now invest in the research, planning, and other activities to relieve hunger through the actions of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008–or Farm Bill. It includes the authorization to use up to $5 million to fund Hunger-Free Communities grants.

The Food and Nutrition Service aims to end the problem of food insecurity by awarding grants that will be used to fund certain activities that will make food easily accessible to the people that really need it the most. Activities such as food distribution, resource development, and community outreach can benefit from this grant well.
