Local Food and Farm Co-ops (LFFC) along with Rural Agri-Innovation Network (RAIN), a division of Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre (SSMIC), is proud to announce a new initiative, the Fair Finance Fund.
Designed to support the local food and farm sector across Ontario, the Fair Finance Fund will support social enterprises and farms that have explicit values in enhancing local food systems, local economies, and the planet. This loan fund will build on seed capital to implement an ongoing investment opportunity for community-minded investors to support food that is grown, raised and processed in their own backyards.
During the event, we will share more about the progress of the fund and receive your feedback. We welcome all stakeholders engaged in the local food and farm space.
Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.
Are you a farm and food enterprise? Community investor? Local food advocate? Economic development organization? We want to hear your voice!
