Overview:

NOTE: Nonprofit organizations based in the USA are eligible to submit one online Letter of Intent (LOI) between December 1 and the deadline above. The Foundation reviews LOIs on a rolling basis. 

Conagra Brands Foundation

We believe everyone has a right to healthy and nutritious food. However, this is not the reality for many, as food insecurity exists in every county of the United States.

To make an impact and raise awareness of food insecurity, the Conagra Brands Foundation engages our employees, partners with leading local and national nonprofits, and inspires others to create a world where people have access to the food they need to reach their full potential.

Community Grants

Through our community impact grant program, the Conagra Brands Foundation continues to build upon our rich heritage of investing in the communities where Conagra Brands operates. We partner with respected community-based nonprofits that provide highly effective programs to transform people’s lives.

Focus Areas

The LOI must strategically align with our core areas of focus which include: 

  • food access
  • nutrition education
  • cooking skills
  • healthy and active lifestyles 
  • select urban agricultural programs that have a clear community focus and provide entrepreneurial skills to help individuals participate in the farm to fork economy

Partnership and collaboration is essential, especially when working to impact large social issues. Therefore, we seek partnerships with highly respected nonprofit organizations with leadership teams that challenge the current status quo with innovative approaches that result in viable solutions.
