We launched two new websites for Double Up Food Bucks this winter, helping shoppers learn about the program nationally and in Michigan more easily than ever before.
People across our food system from farm to fork have been working tirelessly this past year. We talked with Joe Gappy, a Detroit grocery store owner, about his experience during a time defined by uncertainty.
In this quarterly report, we’re excited to announce a NEW investment in Chelsea Business Foundation, a nonprofit supporting Latino-led and small businesses in Chelsea, MA, a partnership with portfolio company Five Acre Farms bringing fresh milk and eggs from Northeast farmers to area food banks, and our new role stepping up to lead the statewide Michigan Good Food Fund initiative.
We partnered with StoryCorps and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to lift up the voices behind SNAP in America. Working with an independent artist, we’ve brought some of the stories to life in a new animated series that provide an intimate look at what food insecurity looks like in our country.
