Matching Grants

GK matches funds raised by a food service company on behalf of a teammate.


Matching Grants provide an opportunity for Giving Kitchen to work directly with an applicants’ coworkers or other members of the food service industry to collect/raise money to help that food service worker. GK matches all funds raised on behalf of an applicant up to $2,500. While a Matching Grant requires less verification than a Direct Grant, guidelines also exist for this program including a narrative explanation of the request and a completed application. Matching Grants may be used to fund expenses that fall outside of the qualifications established for a Crisis Grant (i.e., non-essential living expenses, transportation needs, etc.).

If you are interested in applying for a Matching Grant, please email our programs team at or call 404-254-1227.
