Establishing Additional Funds for Community Food Grants

Further to the previous decisions taken by Cabinet in September and October to support Lancashire's residents to manage the rising cost of living, the public health team has received numerous applications for the community food grants scheme.


The demand for the schemes, especially supporting food related projects in conjunction with warm and welcoming spaces, is over and above the current financial allocations.


This report describes an approach to manage the demand for additional applications for food related schemes to support residents during this winter.
