The John Busch Memorial Food Scholarship


The John Busch Memorial Food Scholarship

The following application for a $1200 dollar scholarship is created in memory of John Busch who worked at New Leaf Market in the area of food preparation off and on since June of 1999. He resigned and returned to New Leaf several times during his employment which ended in February, 2017. The scholarship money has been offered by a couple of friends who want his memory honored in the form of a scholarship for someone in the food field. This grant will be awarded to a project which is healthy food related or organic or whole food based. Our vision is to award this to a person who is possibly taking classes at one of the local institutions  (college or other institution) offering training in the area of food preparation  but also to anyone who has a food specific “project” which is related to the well-being of the community. This could be in the form of a food pantry or garden which would contribute to assisting those in need. Another example is that the money could be used for equipment necessary for the efficient operation of a food project. Rather than for an organization, this money is offered to an individual. Grants will be accepted from May 1st until June 30th. The board’s selection committee will meet in July to select a winner.

Applications are accepted from May 1-June 30, 2019. Any application received after June 30, 2010 will not be considered. Complete application below, or download and email typed responses to folayan.barnes@board.newleafmarket.coop.

The application period for this grant has closed, winners will be notified by September 2, 2019.
