Fair Food Network works at the intersection of food systems, sustainability, and social equity to guarantee access to healthy, fresh, and sustainably grown food, especially in underserved communities.

Grantee Profile

Founded in 2009, Fair Food Network (FFN) works in partnership with numerous other stakeholders to design a food system that upholds the fundamental right to healthy, fresh and sustainably-grown food, with a primary focus on historically-excluded communities. FFN partners with individuals, community-based organizations, funders, government leaders and others to discuss, develop and implement a variety of strategies. FFN’s Double Up Food Bucks program is now a model program for SNAP healthy food incentives, and the Fair Food Fund is poised to become a model for food-systems-related investment programs.

About Our Grants

In 2015, the Woodcock Foundation provided the second installment on a four-year, $400,000 grant to support FFN’s efforts to pioneer innovative solutions to some of the most daunting challenges in our food system.  In particular, the funds are enabling FFN to explore innovative financial tools that can be used to advance a healthy food system.
