Since 2010, almost $57 million has been invested in 632 small food enterprises.

It’s important to reduce dysfunction in our national, political and financial systems, but it’s just as important—maybe even more important—to invest in the future we all want to see in our communities. A healthy local food system is the place to start. Our work is supported entirely by donors like you who recognize that our small nonprofit team is facilitating systemic change.

“Slow Money’s proceedings are truly remarkable. Life-changing, really. The two gatherings I attended were so compelling, so inspiring, so empowering, and yet so down-to-earth that it was impossible to walk away unchanged.”
