Creating a resilient, more equitable food system requires money and support. Community development financial institutions (CDFIs) play a critical role in providing funding, capital, and other resources to hyperlocal DC food businesses. Join us for a dynamic conversation with three national and local CDFIs with a long history of supporting DC food businesses, including partnering on the new DMV Good Food Fund’s Innovative Response Fund, which is providing much-needed support during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Local business owners will also share first-hand accounts of how CDFIs enabled them to start/expand their business.
