About The Program
The Fund Our Foodshed Grant Program is an annual giving initiative that Menomonie Market Food Co-op created in 2018 to help rebuild our rural community.
The program is designed to:
(1) Provide crucial support for local farming operations
(2) Further our co-op’s mission to create a thriving and healthy foodshed by supporting the growth of regional farming, food processing, and product development in the Chippewa Valley
Every spring, grants are distributed to farmers and producers located within 100 miles of our stores for projects that procure equipment, increase efficiency, or contribute to the operation’s sustainability.
