The Queer Food Fund

The Queer Food Fund is a community mutual aid project designed to feed and nourish those impacted by food insecurity in the Black Queer and Trans community. We redistribute funds donated through Venmo and CashApp directly to individuals (18+) who fit these criteria across the United States. This fund is completely operated by volunteer efforts through Queer Food Foundation.

To date, we've distributed over $20,000 in grants.

Applications are closed for now.

Our Fundraising

We have quickly and humbly grown as a go-to resource for and by queer people in the food industry. Our proven impact, innovative ideas, and commitment to community make us a unique partner for uplifting queer folks in food and supporting representation.  

For full transparency, we are currently fundraising for: 

  1. Program Costs: Continue to develop and implement our programming, including the creation of the Queer Food Database, Industry toolkits and editorials, educational panels, and the Queer Food Fund, our mutual aid fund (see below for more information). 

  1. Growing to meet Community Needs: We have ambitious plans to grow our impact by expanding to different areas within the US and hosting in-person networking opportunities such as industry nights to celebrate the vibrant potential of our community, as well as developing community resources such as cookbooks. 

  1. General Operations: As we grow, we hope to bring on our first paid employees and continue to expand our impact.  

You can help us transform the food industry! QFF is growing rapidly, and we’re excited to expand our impact. Our vision is to build an intersectional, equitable food system where queer folks are represented and thriving.
