Financing

Are you looking for money to finance your healthy food access project?

Businesses are typically funded with a combination of equity and debt. Equity can be composed of a business owner’s personal or organizational assets, investments from friends and family, grants, private venture capital, and mission-based equity investors. Foundations along with public sector and financial institutions are increasingly funding healthy food projects, and more opportunities are created each year in response to national, state, and local advocacy campaigns and policy efforts.
