What We Do
Fair Food Network is a national nonprofit that connects people to the power of food to grow community health and wealth.
From our signature program, Double Up Food Bucks, which serves as a national model for healthy food incentives, to our impact investing arm, the Fair Food Fund, we are tapping into the potential of food to improve health, ignite local economies, and open opportunities for all — especially in our most underserved communities.
We believe that one of the most powerful ways we can create lasting change is through something essential to life itself: food. 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 in and with communities. That’s why we take a holistic approach that meets communities where they are to make healthy food accessible and opportunity possible for all. We won’t stop innovating until every one of us can harness the power of food to transform our 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 25+ states and counting.
Fair Food Fund
As the impact investing arm of Fair Food Network, Fair Food Fund invests in early stage entrepreneurs who are growing community health and wealth through food. Our approach combines customized financing and wraparound business assistance to meet entrepreneurs where they are and take them where they want to go.
With this work, we’re not just investing in entrepreneurs, we’re improving healthy food access, supporting American farmers, igniting local economies, and opening opportunities for more people in more places.
