Grants of up to £500 are available via the group's local Asda Store's Community Champion to support charitable groups in the UK to provide vulnerable children with nutritious meals during the summer holidays. Funding criteria will be flexible to allow for the most current government guidance on coronavirus/COVID-19 social distancing/lockdown restrictions.
- Option one - if lockdown restrictions have been lifted at the time of the activity grants could be used to provide nutritious meals to children attending a holiday club.
- Option two - if lockdown restrictions are still in place, grants could be used by a charitable group to deliver nutritious meals to deprived children and families in the local area.
Who Can Apply
Applications are accepted from registered charities, registered not-for-profit companies, community interest companies and unincorporated clubs or associations in the UK.
Application forms can be obtained from Asda Community Champions, who are based in local Asda stores. All applications must be made via the applicant's local Asda Community Champion; applications made directly by organisations will not be accepted by the Foundation.
There are two different application forms, one for groups who are government entity organisations and another for groups who are non-government entities. Guidance notes on completing these forms are available on the Asda Foundation website.
Applicants can use the store locator link on the Foundation website to get in touch with their local store and speak to their Community Champion about their project proposal.
