"Nourish Our Community" Grants Announced by Conagra Brands Foundation

The Conagra Brands Foundation announced the recipients of its annual Nourish Our Community grant program. One-year grants will go to 22 nonprofits in 11 states, with more than $350,000 granted. Each year, Conagra invites employees to nominate nonprofit organizations in their local communities to be considered for grants in areas addressing domestic hunger and food insecurity, cooking skills, nutrition education, healthy and active lifestyles or urban agriculture. Conagra employees also play a part in the selection process with grants being awarded by a cross-functional committee of employees. Examples of this year's grant recipients include organizations distributing healthy food to children, seniors, veterans and homeless populations, providing critical infrastructure upgrades in food pantries, and supporting nutrition education opportunities for underserved communities.
