Immigrant-owned food enterprises are growing across Minnesota thanks to a series of Healthy Food Financing Initiative (HFFI) investments supporting several Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC) projects in Minneapolis. With investments in a Latino-owned grocery, a cooperative grocery, a Latino restaurant, commercial kitchens, a marketing cooperative, a commissary kitchen, and a produce warehouse for small agricultural cooperatives, the LEDC Immigrant Enterprise Healthy Foods Fund is strengthening the local food system, improving health, and building wealth in low-income immigrant communities of color.
