Daily Harvest Announces First Round of Grants to Underserved Farmers
Daily Harvest, the company on a mission to make it easier to eat more sustainably-grown fruits and vegetables, announced the first round of grants in partnership with American Farmland Trust (AFT) and California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). The grants are one pillar of the multi-year partnership supporting historically underserved farmers in California's Central Valley and Central Coast.
The funding helps grantees scale their operations, expand organic acreage and increase the availability of sustainably-grown fruits and vegetables. The 12 farmers all identify as Latino and 50% are women. They grow berries, vegetables, and greens on 50 acres of farmland or less.
