| Are you a food business located in Washington, DC? Are you interested in financing, technical assistance, or grant support for your business? |
Join us on October 7 to learn about the Nourish DC Collaborative and how it can support your food business.
In this webinar, we will provide information on the Nourish DC Collaborative and details on loan products, technical assistance offerings, and grants offered to food businesses. All are welcome, including food businesses, organizations that work with food entrepreneurs, and ecosystem partners. About Nourish DC The Nourish DC Collaborative was created in partnership with the DC government to support the development of a robust ecosystem of locally owned food businesses, neighborhood vibrancy, and health equity in Washington, DC communities, especially in neighborhoods underserved by grocery stores and other food businesses. Nourish DC provides flexible loans, client-focused technical assistance, and catalytic grants to emerging and existing food businesses in the District of Columbia, with a preference for businesses located in or owned by residents of underserved neighborhoods.
Nourish DC supports the entire food value chain including grocery stores, food incubators, corner stores, cooperative businesses, farmers’ markets, food delivery businesses, urban farms, food processors, food hubs, restaurants, and caterers. Nourish DC is committed to building a strong local food ecosystem that supports healthier neighborhoods, economic prosperity, and high-quality job creation in the District.
This event is hosted by Capital Impact Partners and will feature our Nourish DC Collaborative partners: Washington Area Community Investment Fund (Wacif), the Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC), EatsPlace, and Dreaming Out Loud (DOL). You will also hear from the DC Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED), which funded the program through a $1 million grant.
