Healthy Food Incentives Funders Summit

July 19, 2018 All day

This website has resources and information related to the Healthy Food Incentive Funders Summit. This funder-only event brought together the diverse group of private and public institutions that are supporting healthy food incentive programs in communities nationwide. Our goal is to continue to provide a platform for this community of funders to connect and learn from each other and practitioners in the field, and to understand how your grantmaking fits into the larger national landscape of SNAP incentives, FINI matching funding and food systems philanthropy.
