Ripe for Change is a place-based community grants program delivered by Sustainable Table, in partnership with founding philanthropic partners, Morris Family Foundation and Garry White Foundation. It was designed to improve our food-system and deliver enhanced health, employment and sustainability outcomes for the population and environment.
Since 2018, over $330,000 has been awarded in food-system community grants, strong relationships have been formed and much advocacy and impact work has evolved out of these relationships. The Ripe for Change philanthropic collaboration continues to grow and welcome new partners each year.
The program is currently focused in the Mornington Peninsula, Casey and Cardinia regions of Melbourne.
