FreshLo grantees across the country are developing innovative approaches to economic development, cultural expression and health through food-oriented development. In 2017, The Kresge Foundation granted $4.6 million to communities to implement projects. Each organization completed a one-year planning phase to address the needs of their community and engage residents in the design of the project in order to receive implementation funding.
Green Opportunities is using their FreshLo planning grant to develop a comprehensive strategy that will strengthen their food programs to impact creative revitalization of the Southside neighborhood in ways that are inclusive and neighborhood-driven.
