“A” is for artichoke and allspice and Awesome…

The Awesome Foundation for the Arts and Sciences is an international organization in the business of “forwarding the interest of awesomeness in the universe.” Awesome Food, its latest chapter, is now accepting applications for monthly-awarded $1,000 microgrants.  First round applications are due Friday, August 5th.

The ideas must relate to food in some form, and the definition will be more inclusive than exclusive. Examples could include educating the public about DIY-farming, creating an ad-hoc eatery in a subway car, or recording videos of immigrants’ recipes.

Anyone is eligible to apply: For profit, non-profit, individuals, companies, schools, adults, children, Good Food listeners…hint, hint.  The $1,000 grants are not loans or investments.  They are no-strings attached grants and are not expected be paid back. The Awesome Foundation has a FAQ on how the grants work.

We know our listeners are brimming over with ideas.  Let’s see what you’ve got.  Apply now!

    Wow! Do you think that they would consider giving a grant to someone who's writing a photo/poetry book about healthy food? I've just started one and this might be a great way to cover the expenses.
