As our longest-running food policy initiative, our Richard Sax Food Action Grant is awarded yearly in the IACP conference host city to a nonprofit combatting hunger and increasing food access in innovative ways. We will soon announce when Food Action grant letters of interest will be accepted from organizations working in our 2017 conference host city, Louisville, KY.

Our Food Writing Program kicked off in the summer of 2015 in collaboration with The New School and the Feet In Two Worlds project to offer a “Food In Two Worlds” multimedia storytelling workshop for immigrant journalists and food writers focusing on food stories from immigrant communities.

Our Food Writing Fellowships program began in 2016 in partnership with the Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts. The 2016 Fellowship cohort has been selected. The opportunities and timeline for the 2017 Fellowship program will be announced in the fall.
Our cause-driven grant opportunities include start up and “step ahead” funding for programs and projects that address critical food issues, and those issues can be identified and defined by the applicant. Examples of critical issues The Trust will fund include food access and combatting hunger, food sovereignty, environment, food labor, child nutrition, cooking education, and recapturing the lost art of cooking for families and communities.
The Culinary Trust is the 501(c)3 philanthropic foundation of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, with a mission to provide culinary professionals the tools and opportunities to understand and act on critical issues in food.
