The Wolf Admin. will award more than $9 million to non-profit groups

The awards come from the expanded Food Recovery Infrastructure grant program announced in April.

Grants will allow food banks, shelters and soup kitchens to cover the costs of equipment purchases necessary to prepare, transport and store food acquired from retailers, wholesalers, farms, processors and cooperatives.

The Administration says increased demand on the charitable food system related to COVID-19 has demonstrated an immediate need for resources to support additional cold storage space, and more flexibility and changes to this grant program.
