The funds available through the Country Food Distribution Program will support projects that improve the viability of the harvesting economy and that increase access to affordable and healthy country food.
There are two schedules in the program:
Community Harvesting Transfer Fund (Schedule A)
Community Harvesting Infrastructure Fund (Schedule B)
The Community Harvesting Transfer Fund supports initiatives that will improve the local harvesting economy.
For communities that own and operate their community infrastructure, the fund can pay up to $10,000 of the utilities and maintenance cost of community freezers or other country food infrastructure.
The purpose of the Community Harvesting Infrastructure Fund is to help communities to build a modern and energy efficient community freezer, or to support other harvesting infrastructure. The fund provides contributions to the following activities:
- Repair and upgrading of existing community freezer, community market or cut and wrap facilities; and
- Design, purchase, and installation of new community freezer, community market or cut and wrap components and infrastructure.
