It’s that time of year! Announcing the 2016-2017 Colorado Mini-Grants.

Hazon awards $20,000 annually to individuals and organizations in the Denver/Boulder metro area who want to make our community healthier and more sustainable.

If you’re interested but in need of inspiration, here are some ideas to get you thinking:

  • Start a project or host an educational program that addresses food justice issues such as hunger, food deserts, and fair trade
  • Host a healthy/sustainable cooking class in your Jewish community
  • Launch an eco-kosher Shabbat group to share Friday nights with friends and family
  • Host a food preservation workshop
  • Start a new garden or expand an existing garden at a Jewish institution
  • Lead a Jewish hike or bike ride
  • Incorporate local, organic, and fair trade ingredients into your Jewish organization’s kitchen
