PCC Natural Markets launches Community Grant program
Seattle Wash., January 7, 2014 – PCC Natural Markets (PCC) has launched a Community Grant program. Four times a year, PCC will award a $1,000 grant to a school or non-profit that truly exemplifies the spirit of our local community.
Grants will be awarded to schools or non-profits with official 501c3 status. PCC is seeking projects and programs that involve food, particularly those relating to education, nutrition or sustainability. The winning organizations will be shared on PCC’s website throughout the year.
It’s easy for organizations to apply – all of the necessary information can be found online at pccmarkets.com/community/grants/. Applications will take time to process and review, but will remain active for 12 months.
PCC has long supported the community through other ongoing community programs. PCC’s donations program has supported numerous local organizations and causes. And PCC’s Food Bank Program supports 10 neighborhood food banks, donating more than 60,000 pounds of food a year. The new Community Grant program gives PCC another opportunity to support and connect with the community on a larger level.
