US: $75,000 up for grabs for growers

Cultivating Change is a grant program that gives local farms funds to upgrade operations, invest in food safety, implement sustainable technology, and continue doing what they do best: grow.

Cultivating Change is part of Greener Fields Together’s mission to create a sustainable supply chain from seed-to-fork. The program is funded by Greener Fields Together’s network of fresh produce distributors throughout North America who want to invest in the farms that have been the backbone of their communities for generations.

Every time a distributor within our network purchases a package from a Greener Fields Together (GFT) local farm partner, they donate 5 cents to the Cultivating Change fund. This year, our distributors purchased over 1,400,000 packages from GFT local farms, resulting in $75,000 in total grant awards.
