An investment in good food is an investment in Michigan’s future.
Michigan Good Food Fund is a statewide loan fund that invests in good food enterprises working to increase access to healthy food and spark economic opportunity in places that need it most. Since 2015, this initiative has provided more than $17 million in loans and grants supporting 300+ Michigan-based food businesses that grow, process, distribute, and sell healthy food.
We’re on the lookout for Michigan-based businesses that, with our support, can make a positive change in their communities. Support included financing as well as business assistance with the goal to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses and thrive.

From Farm to (Every) Fork.
As a mission-driven effort, we focus support on businesses that are increasing healthy food access, creating jobs, integrating environmental practices, and supporting local souring. We also bring a deep commitment to racial and social equity to ensure more equitable access to financing as well as food, jobs, and ownership.
Finally, we are committed to supporting projects from farm to fork. This includes the range of businesses that grow, process, distribute, or sell “good food,” meaning food that is healthy, green, fair, and affordable.
