Pop-up Food Relief Market grants

The Victorian Government is providing $1.25 million in grants to community organisations to deliver free and low-cost food to people in need, through new pop-up food relief markets across Melbourne.

Who can apply:

Community organisations that deliver food relief may be interested in the Pop-up Food Relief Market grants, to help deliver healthy and culturally appropriate food to Victorians through farmer’s market style stalls.

Community organisations can apply for either:

  • A small project grant of up to $25,000, to provide a minimum of four markets over two months.
  • A large project grant of up to $85,000, for partnerships of organisations to provide a minimum of 10 markets over six months

These grants can be used by organisations to cover the costs associated with delivering food relief markets, such as buying culturally appropriate food.
