$125,000 Convertible Note
Enterprise:
Fresh Food Generation is a farm-to-table catering service, food truck, and community café in Boston. It serves up healthy and affordable Latin American and Caribbean food sourced from local farms with a focus on reaching underserved Boston neighborhoods.
Financing Purpose & Date:
The March 2018 convertible note is supporting Fresh Food Generation's continued growth by enabling it to hire more employees and professionalize its website to include an improved online ordering platform and greater focus on its catering work.
Update:
Fresh Food Generation was the winner of our 2015 Fair Food Business Boot Camp. As its prize, it received additional consulting support focused on financial planning. In March 2017, Fair Food Fund provided Fresh Food Generation a bridge loan of $11,000, laying the foundation for the subsequent 2018 convertible note investment in collaboration with Boston Impact Initiative. Such business and financial support has helped Fresh Food Generation mature from a small start-up to a growing business. In the coming years, Fresh Food Generation is focused on expanding its catering business leading to even greater positive impact on eaters and growers in Boston and beyond.
