2022 Grant Impact Areas

Food Security and Resilience

  • Food Security: Innovative programs focused on expanding access to fresh, healthy, culturally relevant foods, hands-on nutrition education, and participation in government nutrition security programs to create more equitable communities. Shipt also has a vested interest in catalyzing initiatives that aim to reduce the logistical barriers communities experience in accessing healthy foods.
  • Resilience: Initiatives that strengthen local food systems and infrastructure to build thriving communities, including but not limited to reducing food waste and supporting community gardening and agriculture, farmers markets and cooperatives, food hubs, community kitchens, and food-based incubators.

Note: To maximize the sustained impact of these smaller grants, we seek innovative solutions to food security and resilience and thus, funding requests from food pantries or food banks that do not align with the above criteria will not be considered.

Expanding and Creating Access

  • Innovative programs designed to expose and/or train youth from under-resourced communities for careers in tech, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
  • Programs and initiatives focused on increasing representation, growth, and retention of African-American/Black and Hispanic businesses via resources and support to narrow the digital divide and other access barriers.
