What We Do
Fair Food Network is a national nonprofit on a mission to connect people to the power of food to grow community health and wealth.
Since launching a decade ago, we have been driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and an unwavering commitment to our mission: To grow community health and wealth through food.
At Fair Food Network, we believe big ideas and bold actions are needed to create lasting change. That’s why we take a holistic approach that meets communities where they are to improve health, ignite local economies, and open opportunities for all.
From our work with nutrition incentives bringing healthy food in reach of every family with additional benefits to local farmers and grocers to our impact investing arm, Fair Food Fund, which is a national fund that works locally to support food entrepreneurs in being the engine of a more equitable future.
Together with our partners, we are growing a future where everyone can harness the full potential of food to transform their communities for good.
Double Up Food Bucks
Fair Food Network’s Double Up Food Bucks program matches SNAP, or food stamp, dollars spent on fruits and vegetables. It’s a win/win/win: More healthy food for families, better business for farmers, and a boost for local economies. See how Double Up has grown since 2009 – from a small pilot to a statewide effort in Michigan to a national model informing policy change in communities from coast to coast.
Fair Food Fund
As a national fund that works locally, we partner with communities to build solutions that catalyze not just entrepreneur success, but systems change. This includes weaving together community voice, entrepreneur vision, local strengths, and national assets so food entrepreneurs can be the engine of a more equitable future. To this work, we bring our own catalytic capital, business assistance, and networks with a focus on supporting BIPOC and women-led businesses.
