Feed Opportunity Fund | Maple Leaf Centre for Action on Food Security


$10,000 – $150,000


The Feed Opportunity Fund provides grants to organizations engaged in testing and expanding innovative approaches to advance food security. We aim to learn from the successes and failures of each initiative that we support and to find models that work which have the potential to be replicated or scaled for greater impact. Projects considered for funding typically advance one of these areas of food security:

  • Affordability
  • Accessibility
  • Build individual and community capacity
  • Expand knowledge and evaluate impact through research
  • Foster collaboration and knowledge sharing

The Feed Opportunity Fund provides grants that fall under two categories, “Projects” and “Learning”.

Feed Opportunity Project Grants support initiatives that go beyond emergency food relief to help build capacity, support systems, develop skills and further economic opportunities. We also seek to establish meaningful collaborative relationships with partners that support employee skills exchange, knowledge sharing and impact. Lessons learned will be shared broadly and potentially lead to scalable and replicable models

The Feed Opportunity Learning grants advance knowledge transfer, training, evaluation tools and research that furthers understanding of food security, and the effectiveness of different interventions. Through the Learning grant, the Centre also supports networking and research that builds our knowledge, and collective impact
