Created in 2019, the Local Food Infrastructure Fund (LFIF) is a five-year, $70 million federal program running until March 31, 2024. LFIF aims to reduce food insecurity and strengthen local food systems. This supports climate adaptation by increasing community resilience to sudden economic or environmental changes. Examples of projects include:

  • installing walk-in refrigerators, greenhouses or irrigation systems
  • organizing community kitchens or gardens
  • maintaining urban farms or vertical gardens
