The GNCA applied for and was awarded a grant from The Johns Hopkins Neighborhood fund to assist members of our community who may be experiencing food insecurity or other unexpected expenses due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
In order to reach and support the most number of people possible, we are limiting each one-time request to $50.
If you have a greater need, please contact us directly. Please seek out resources in your direct communities for additional support and be on the lookout for more opportunities for support coming from GNCA over the course of the next few months.
To apply for support from the grant, please submit your information on the Google Form listed below.
(Please note, the form will be available and accepting requests long as funds are available during the grant period.)

We would like to invite you to have a conversation with Senator Washington around food access, creating a sustainable, and equitable food system, this Thursday, May 7th @6pm. The Senator will be joined by a panel of guests to discuss various food initiatives and challenges around the district. Among the panelist will be Director Holly Freishtat from the Baltimore City Planning Department who will be available to address any questions or concerns members may have around food access in the city. There will be a 30 minute question and answer period around this subject matter.
