Fair Food Network
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.
Launched in 2009, Fair Food Network brings an unwavering commitment to its mission: to grow community health and wealth through food. From farms to families, its work is connecting people to the power of food to improve health, ignite local economies, and open opportunities for all. The decade plus it has spent testing and growing scalable solutions has led to big changes in communities: First through Double Up Food Bucks, which today is a national model for healthy food incentives, and now through Fair Food Fund, which is investing in good food entrepreneurs. Fair Food Fund is tapping into the potential of food to improve health, ignite local economies, and open opportunities for all–especially in the most underserved communities. Together with its partners, Fair Food Network is pioneering and proving innovations that can be owned locally and scaled nationally, growing a future where all communities can harness the full potential of food.
About Our Grants
In 2019, the Woodcock Foundation committed to a new three-year grant in the amount of $300,000 to support FFN’s continued efforts to grow community health and wealth through food as it designs innovative programs to effect systemic change. In 2021, Woodcock made an additional $10,000 grant to FFN to support a brand refresh and strategic positioning project.
