We’ll hear about the Fair Food Fund, launched by the Fair Food Network to support local food economies and close health and wealth gaps in high-need communities by investing in local agriculture, food businesses, and other entrepreneurs working to increase healthy food access. The fund is fueled by a combination of philanthropic and investment capital. It takes a holistic approach, providing both capital and technical assistance to investees, while employing a place-based strategy with a focus on equity and inclusion.

After the presentation, we’ll discuss The Fair Food Investment Initiative, working to connect and coordinate existing and new local food system stakeholders and resources for improved community well-being. As part of the conversation, Campbell Soup Foundation will share why being an anchor investor in the fund is so important to them. In the world of COVID-19, investing in the local food economy will be critical to supporting economic recovery and health. Learn how your organization can support this important work in Camden today.
