Nov. 26 is the deadline to apply for a limited number of small grants ($200-$2,000) for individuals and organizations in Portland to fund projects, programs and events that combine food and/or sustainability issues with Judaism.
The grants are a joint program of Portland Tuv Ha’Aretz and Hazon funded in part by an allocation from the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland Community Impact Grant Fund.
“This is a unique opportunity to combine your creative ideas about food and sustainability with Jewish teachings, practices and traditions,” according to an announcement from Liz Schwartz and Hannah Treuhaft, Hazon Portland project coordinators. “We are particularly interested in projects that offer collaborative possibilities across the various Jewish communities of Portland.”
