Ample Table for Everyone (ATE) is a New York City-based 501(c)3 founded on the most basic premise that every child across the five boroughs—a city punctuated by abundance—should be able to say, ‘I ate!’ In reality, many families lack the resources to provide nutritious and dependable meals.
ATE is now accepting preliminary grant proposals for projects in New York City that address at least one of the major factors leading to food insecurity in families: lack of money, lack of time, limited access to nutritious food, and unfamiliarity with a variety of ingredients, cooking methods and recipes.
ATE is seeking innovative, effective, replicable and/or expandable programs with long-term impact. Of particular, but not exclusive, interest are initiatives in prenatal/early childhood nutrition and/or leveraging technology to amplify reach. Proposals should be project-based as ATE does not fund general operating support.
Successful applicants will have the potential to effect change and engage their communities in meaningful ways—leading to healthier families. Grants will be awarded up to $15,000.
A preliminary application form and more information is available online. Deadline: March 2, 2015.
