Massachusetts Food Ventures Program FY2025

The overall goal of the MFVP is to increase access to healthy, affordable food options and improve economic opportunities for low to moderate-income communities. The MFVP will provide funding through grants to support food ventures designed to provide greater access to healthy food, which is sited primarily in or near communities of low or moderate income, including Gateway Cities and rural communities. The MFVP will help implement the goals of the Massachusetts Local Food Action Plan and contribute to the financing needs of local Massachusetts food enterprises. With expanded investment, completed projects will improve access to Massachusetts-grown, harvested, or caught food products by developing collaborations with local agricultural enterprises and private/public entities.
