About The Program
The Menomonie Market Fund Our Foodshed Grant program aims to support the small but often vital projects that help keep small to mid-sized farms and businesses viable and running. Every spring, grants are distributed to farmers and/or producers located within 100 miles of our co-op for projects that procure equipment, increase efficiency, or contribute to the operation’s sustainability.
How It’s Funded
The Fund Our Foodshed Grants are funded through contributions made by our shoppers through the Round Up for Good program and also by direct contributions from Menomonie Market. A committee consisting of staff, owners, and board members reviews applications and awards the grants.
