Nourish DC Collaborative Launch: Financing Washington, DC Food Businesses to Expand Economic Prosperity

Food businesses located in Washington, DC can access financing, technical assistance, or grant support through the Nourish DC Collaborative. Join us on October 7 for the launch of Nourish DC to find out how it can support your food business.

Our webinar 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.

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, Dreaming Out Loud (DOL) and CDC Small Business Finance. 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.
