2015 saw the successful launch of Fresh Source Capital Fund I. Our 2015 impact report highlights the activities of the Fund and the work of our portfolio companies.
Fresh Source Capital’s mission is to rebuild the local, regional food supply chain in the Northeast. Through our work in this sector, we see three main avenues to pursue towards this goal.
As foundations across the region look for ways to combat climate change, reduce rural poverty, or improve access to healthy fresh food, they are increasingly focusing on local food systems as an investment opportunity. Traditionally, a foundation’s mission strategy would be accomplished solely through its grant-making capacity. Today, there are many options for a foundation to utilize it’s endowment strength for impact in this sector.
