2017 EB Grant Application

Empty Bowls Monongalia is dedicated to helping fight hunger throughout Monongalia County. We provide annual grants to local food pantries, meal programs and weekend backpack programs. Any organization in Monongalia County maintaining a food pantry, meal program, or weekend backpack program to provide food to hungry people in Monongalia County is eligible to make application for funding. Awards are limited to programs located within Monongalia County benefiting Monongalia County residents. Empty Bowls awards may be used for food only.

Applications are available in March. Award letters are generally mailed in late April. Checks are mailed in late June for the next fiscal year.

The Empty Bowls Agency Liaison Committee review all applications received and scores each application. Applications are divided into three categories: Food Pantries, Meal Programs and Weekend Backpack Programs.

All decisions for recommendations for awards are based upon review and consensus of the Agency Liaison Committee. Committee recommendations are presented to the Empty Bowls Board of Directors for final approval.
