Michigan Good Food Fund
Growing Michigan’s good food future.
The Michigan Good Food Fund is a $30 million public-private partnership loan fund that provides financing and business assistance to good food enterprises that benefit underserved communities across Michigan.
By filling these gaps that many entrepreneurs face, the Fund aims to increase access to healthy food and drive economic development and job creation, while promoting greater racial and social equity, environmental stewardship, and local sourcing.
A first-of-its-kind effort.
Unlike other healthy food financing efforts that primarily focus on retail, the Fund is committed to supporting projects across Michigan’s food value chain including the diverse range of enterprises that produce, process, distribute, and sell nutritious food that reaches low-income and underserved communities. It is also bringing a serious commitment to racial and social equity. This is a first-of-its-kind effort working to create financial and social impact throughout the food value chain.
Fair Food Network is a core Fund partner.
Fair Food Network leads outreach and communications, as well as provides business assistance and pipeline development targeting retail and good food entrepreneurs. Additional core partners include Capital Impact Partner, Michigan State University Center for Regional Food Systems, and W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
