Slow Food Pikes Peak has established an education fund in the name of one of our chapter’s founders, Jerald Bridgman. This fund is intended to support educational initiatives to encourage public awareness of food traditions, stewardship of the environment, and responsible care, harvesting, and consumption of plants and animals in the Pikes Peak region while meeting the Slow Food mission of “Good, clean, fair food for all”. Residents of the Pikes Peak Region (Douglas, El Paso, Fremont, Pueblo, Teller counties) are encouraged to apply for 2020 grants.
The objectives for our fund are to:
- Maximize positive impact on the Pikes Peak food community
- Sow seed money where it can be multiplied from other sources
- Encourage education for teachers consistent with the Slow Food mission
- Enable a broad range of initiatives from pre-school to adult education
Grants of up to $1000 are available for projects meeting these objectives. Applications will be accepted from March 1st, 2020 through midnight on March 31st, 2020.
The application for our 2020 Jerald Bridgman Education Fund grant application is available below.
