Funding Opportunity for Healthy Eating Projects


The Community Food Initiatives (CFI) is a healthy eating programme funded by safefood. The programme runs over a three year cycle (2022-24) and its purpose is to provide people with the knowledge and skills to provide healthy food options for themselves and their families.
