Household Support Fund – Wealden Food Partnership


Application Form

Household Support Fund Wealden Food Partnership

Application Deadline: Tuesday 4th July 2023

Wealden Food Partnership has been asked by East Sussex County Council to co-ordinate a further round of the Household Support Fund (HSF) grant to groups/organisations who are working to address food poverty and/or food insecurity in Wealden.


In previous rounds we have given grants to support some excellent work which is making a real difference to our communities.


Examples include:

  • Community fridges and sharing tables focused on reducing food waste.
  • Community growing projects bringing people together to grow and cook fresh food.
  • Delivery of cookery training to staff and volunteers focusing on low cost, healthy eating for people on low incomes.
  • Development and support for new and existing lunch clubs.
  • Providing the healthy lunch element for holiday activity clubs for children on free school meals
  • Supporting farmers and community groups to provide meal kits and recipe cards for families and older people.


We’d like to support as many organisations as we can with these grants.  The money could be used to support existing work, or to start something new.


Is there something you’ve wanted to develop, whether it be around training, developing infrastructure or delivering something collaboratively?  We’re here to help!  We can support you in your application through discussing, connecting and helping to enable your ideas come to life.


If you’d like to have an initial chat about your ideas, please email

  • what you’d like to do
  • who you envisage supporting, e.g. families, older people
  • how much you’d like to apply for
  • how you would spend the money
