Geographic Areas:

Levitt Foundation funds “youth-powered food justice.” Grants enable young people to learn about healthy eating and food systems AND take action to increase access to affordable fresh/nutritious foods in their own neighborhoods. The Foundation prefers neighborhood-based initiatives that engage young people in learning and action over an extended period of time and that are designed to build their confidence and self-esteem, citizenship skills, and leadership abilities. Activities may include urban farming, farmers’ markets, neighborhood food surveys, use of social media, community organizing and advocacy to enhance public policies and practices.
