Locally Owned, Organically Grown

NHFC Microgrant Program

What is the NHFC Microgrant Program?

100% of NHFC’s October 2020 customer round-up donations will be used to directly support local farmers. We are excited to strengthen our relationship with local farmers to help increase the production of high quality, sustainably grown food, and ultimately improve overall access to local, healthy food for all our community members.
