Attracting Capital

Since cluster development must consider both long and short-term opportunities, strategies and challenges; the capital needs of any network mirror those considerations.  A broad range of private and public resources are currently available to encourage the development of healthy (economically and nutritionally) local and regional food networks.


“It is…important to invest in communities at all levels of network maturity; not simply those that are the most successful, or the most challenged.”

- Ken Meter and Megan Phillips Goldenberg, Crossroads Resource Center
