Finance for Food develops and delivers online and print materials, workshops, and other educational opportunities designed to inform sustainable food system entrepreneurs about the wide variety of capital opportunities available, helping them identify and secure values-aligned financing. Ultimately, our goal is to increase the pace and scale of the transition to a food system that restores the health of our bodies, families, communities, economies, and environment.
Imagine a world in which…
…entrepreneurs across the United States are helping people solve environmental and social problems, domestically and abroad, through a wide variety of food-based businesses founded upon sustainable values…
…and lack of access to capital no longer stands in the way of their efforts to launch, maintain, or grow their social ventures.
This is the vision of Finance for Food.
