The Fair Finance Fund is a non-profit social finance fund dedicated to providing loans and mentorship services to local food and farm enterprises that value strong local food systems, local economies, and a healthy planet. The Fair Finance Fund builds on seed capital to implement an ongoing investment opportunity for community-minded investors, that is, individuals who want to invest their capital to support local food systems in Ontario to support food that is grown, raised and processed in their own backyards.
With the investments we are securing within the sector, we expect to have $10 million available for funding local food projects
At our Fall Forums throughout Ontario, we brought together over 100 people as investors, potential applicants, organizations within the sector, producers and entrepreneurs.
This is our goal for the first year of launching our Fair Finance Fund.
