Congratulations to our latest grantees!


The Regina Rosen Food First Fund was established by the Foundation’s Board of Directors in 2012. It was named in Gini’s honour in recognition of her exceptional involvement with the Foundation for decades and her passion for ensuring access to healthy food for all.

Twelve grants are awarded annually. Successful applicants receive a $1,000 grant to support their efforts in addressing food insecurity in Kingston & surrounding areas. Organizations should be engaged in procurement, production, preservation, and/or preparations, education and skill development, with a goal of alleviating hunger and addressing food security and food equity in our communities. Grants can be applied to project staff, equipment, distribution, promotion, or food.
