Running Head: CFP GRANT 1 Community Food Projects (CFP) Grant Name School Affiliation Date CFP GRANT 2 The Community Food Projects (CFP) is a grant program provided by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) to suitable food program service administrators, nonprofits, and tribal organizations. NIFA provides this grant to the above-listed eligible organizations, especially those in need of federal aid to fund projects that lower food insecurity and improve self-sufficiency in impoverished communities. The U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) founded NIFA in 2008, aiming to discover modern solutions to food, communities, agriculture, and environmental issues. Hence, their mission is to "invest and advance agricultural research, education, and extension to solve societal challenges" (Who We Are, n.d.). We at Feeding America acknowledge our country's food insecurity and hunger problem. Most people, especially families with children and from coloured communities, experience hunger problems, unable to feed themselves and their young ones, especially after the pandemic hit. Most of these households are ineligible for federal nutrition programs (Hunger in America | Feeding America, n.d.). Our non-profit organization aims to eradicate this hunger problem, especially among low-income communities, where we initiated the BackPack Program that offers free groceries for families at the weekends and during school breaks(BackPack Program | Feeding America, n.d.). The CFP competitive grant is perfect for our program, and we qualify for their set criterion. The CFP grant aligns with our program in that it aims to reduce food insecurity and end the hunger problem in the country. In addition, given that we are a non-profit organization with a program targeting low-income communities and promoting access to food, we are eligible for the grant(GRANTS.GOV | Find. Apply. Succeed., n.d.). The grant program mainly funds projects that satisfy the "food needs of low-income individuals through food distribution", which we do and “increase participation in federally assisted nutrition programs”, which we address by CFP GRANT 3 providing food to those unqualified in the federal nutrition programs (USDA/NIFA: Community Food Projects Competitive Grant Program, n.d). The grant program also requires that the nonprofit organization have adequate experience concerning "efforts to reduce food security in the community including food distribution" (USDA/NIFA: Community Food Projects Competitive Grant Program, n.d). In the BackPack Program, we partner with schools and community centres, ensuring that we reach many people and efficiently distribute food. Additionally, having operated for forty years in supplying needy Americans with food, we are adequately experienced in the Rood distribution sector.

Specifically, we will employ postcolonial and comparative approaches to analyze how our students in the pilot Collaborative Online International (COIL) project offered in Spring 2021 incorporated social justice in their course discussion boards and assignments. Reimagining COIL with Ignatian values at the center represents a significant new direction for COIL scholarship. To date, COIL scholarship has either focused on technology or emphasized career building skills through a business-like approach, in that it focuses on tangible and measurable cross-cultural competencies (Moore and Simon 2). Our COIL project took a different approach and underscored instead that interacting with people across cultures entails different sets of skills. We will use these theoretical insights and research findings to develop a Creighton COIL website that will be used to disseminate the best new practices that have emerged from our experience and can serve as a template for other projects. It will also provide extensive resources to faculty to develop COIL projects, including a bibliography for research and scholarship, COIL syllabi, possible COIL partners, and tips and strategies for a successful COIL project. The Creighton COIL website will have a significant impact in encouraging faculty to pursue more COIL opportunities to enhance students’ global learning. This COIL scholarship exemplifies innovative pedagogy that Creighton is known for. First, by building resources that will strengthen Creighton’s “intentional global focus” in accordance with Ignatian values, this project will fulfill the goals set out by the President Fr. Hendrickson’s Creighton Global Initiative and The Common Home Project. Second, the project fulfills the College of Arts and Sciences’ mission of forming students who “question systems and structures, and transform society through willing the good of all.” Greater interaction and collaboration across cultures will help students learn about power relations and hierarchies that structure such relations. For example, online learning makes students think about the money and privilege that travel for study depends on. Third, the project demonstrates how the scholarship of pedagogy can work in the service of the faculty community by linking theoretical knowledge production to community resources. This project demonstrates both the necessity and value of faculty-staff partnerships in advancing innovative pedagogy. It will build important repositories of knowledge for us to engage as we grapple with difficult questions around COIL.
