CSX and The Conservation Fund Grants Support to Producers and Distributors of Local, Fresh Foods in Underserved Communities


Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 Grant Program for Transporting Healthy Food, presented in partnership by CSX and The Conservation Fund.

Now in its second year, the Grant Program for Transporting Healthy Food is designed to support and strengthen local transportation and distribution infrastructure for healthy food to communities in need. The program enhances delivery capabilities of producers and distributors and improves the availability of healthy food for nearby consumers. In 2014, the recipient organizations used the grants to purchase refrigeration and delivery trucks, acquire portable food chests and expand local food supply and capacity to provide nearly 118 million pounds of nutritious food to approximately six million people annually.

In 2015, grants ranging from $2,500 to $10,000 will be made available to charitable entities that distribute fresh produce and perishable food in 22 states where CSX operates-Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

The grants can support a range of activities related to transportation, including:

  • Acquiring refrigerated vehicles for direct delivery to markets, food hubs or distribution center
  • Financing mobile market trucks and food stands to bring fresh food to isolated communities
  • Improving on-site and mobile processing and storage-flash, freezing, drying or refrigeration-of meats and seafood needed for distribution; and
  • Purchasing produce boxes and cold storage bins to keep unsold food fresh for the next day's farmers market or wholesale purchase.

As one of the nation's premier transportation companies, with an important role in transporting agricultural, food and food-service products, CSX recognized the integral role that distribution plays in supporting access to fresh food.

Grant applications are due by September 18, 2015. To download a grant application and see more information about the program, please visit http://www.conservationfund.org/partner-with-us/business/csx or contact Margarita Carey at mcarey@conservationfund.org.
