Chicago Community Loan Fund

Chicago Community Loan Fund (CCLF) is using HFFI financing to fund a pipeline of projects that include innovative approaches to food production such as urban farms, creative additions to food processing such as business incubators, and the addition of distribution centers such as farmers markets and supermarkets in underserved areas. One project is the TurkeyChop in Chicago, Illinois, a restaurant that makes a difference in communities of color that lack healthy choices by providing leaner meat options with less fat and salt.
