Giant Food Launches Microgrant Program in Ward 8

A new annual microgrant program has been launched by grocery retailer Giant Food to support a variety of Ward 8 community programs.

This year’s funding of $35,000 in microgrants will be given to 16 organizations in southeast D.C. with nutrition knowledge, access to healthy food, financial literacy and healthy living, Giant said in a statement.

“With Giant’s presence as the only full-service grocery store in the Ward 8 community, we know we have a responsibility to the community to serve as a partner in helping to improve the health and wellbeing of its residents,” said Jillian Griffith, Giant Food’s Ward 8 nutritionist. “I’m so excited for Giant to partner with some of the real movers and shakers in Ward 8 who understand the needs of the community and are truly making a difference through the work of their organizations.”

Recipients of the first annual “Ward 8 Healthy Living Microgrant Program,” which include Women Advancing Nutrition, Anacostia AMP Outreach Empowerment Center, and The Kitchen Physician, were selected through an application process and formal committee led by Griffith. The money will also be used to host classes, workshops and programs while covering necessary funding for needed materials.
