Local Food Fund

The Local Food Fund, a three-year initiative with funding of up to $10 million per year, was developed as part of a comprehensive set of programs to support good jobs, attract investment, and help the agri-food industry make an even greater contribution to Ontario's economic success.

All intakes for the Local Food Fund are now completed and applications are no longer being accepted. The government continues to have a suite of programs for which projects related to local food may qualify. These include Growing Forward 2, the Greenbelt Fund and the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

A list of Local Food Fund project recipients is available at: Ontario Local Food Fund Recipients.
