The United Way of PEI is accepting submissions for the Island Food Security Grant Program, which is made possible due to the success of the 2018 PEI Burger Love Campaign and the 29 restaurants that supported the Give Back Burger. The Give Back Burger initiative saw participating restaurants donate $1 for each burger sold in April 2018 to the United Way, raising over $59,000 to support programs that increase access to healthy local and affordable food for Islanders.
The United Way is accepting submissions for innovative programs and projects that focus on children, youth and their families who are experiencing, or are at risk of experiencing, food insecurity. Deadline for submissions to the Island Food Security Grant Program is September 27.
