In an effort to drive forward its ongoing Better for All initiative and UNFI Food Equity Project, United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI) has introduced a new grant opportunity. With this funding, the distributor looks to increase the efforts of Rhode Island-based organizations working to provide equitable access to healthy food.

Alisha Real, Executive Director, United Natural Foods, Inc. Foundation“UNFI is proud to offer this grant opportunity as a way to increase access to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food, and we’re thrilled to support the great [work] happening right in our own backyard,” said Alisha Real, Executive Director, UNFI Foundation. “This opportunity will not only help forge new relationships and allow for specificity in the resources that are most needed to make an impact, but also allow for tangible change and a brighter outlook on the future of food access.”

UNFI’s new Food Equity Project Grant will award $100,000 to one or more local nonprofit organizations dedicated to eliminating hunger and improving public health in Rhode Island communities, a press release explained. Currently, applications for the grant are open and will remain open through May 16, 2022. UNFI will begin working with selected partners in August.
