Grants of up to $50,000 to USA nonprofit organizations for food initiatives in communities impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Priority will be given to projects that benefit members of the Venezuelan diaspora and other vulnerable populations throughout the United States. The program seeks to provide funds to charitable organizations that organize food drives for individuals in need. The Foundation encourages strategic associations with local businesses and organizations, aiming at having a multiplier effect.

This is an open call to organizations to present proposals that can range from providing a warm meal on a one-day event to food drives to provide food supplies to families in need, to be implemented for several days, or weeks. The proposals should specifically present a gap analysis, indicating the need for the program, population benefited, execution plan, and a communication strategy defining how the target population will be reached. The Foundation encourages strategic associations with local businesses and organizations, aiming at having a multiplier effect.

This program is in line with two of the Foundation’s objectives:

  • Access to medicines, nutrition, and well-being, and
  • Empowering non-governmental organizations (“NGOs”) and local organization
