Thanks to everyone who submitted to the first Awesome Food grant! It’s been overwhelming. Not only do we have applications from all over the United States and Canada, but also have applications from around the world: Tel Aviv, Shanghai, London, Melbourne. It’s great to see how much Food Awesomeness there is.
So, 600 is a record for any of the Awesome Foundation chapters, and it will take us a bit to figure out how to process them. But we are scurrying around trying to figure out how to narrow it down.
And yes, the applications are good for subsequent rounds. If they are not time sensitive, the top ones will automatically be rolled into considerations.
In our ideal world, we’d announce in early September. (Wiggle room)
