Food Linc

Food LINC, which stands for Leveraging Investment for Network Coordination, is a three-year initiative spearheaded by USDA and its philanthropic partners to enhance local and regional food systems. Ten organizations have been initially selected to support a full time "value chain coordinator" who will provide local food sector coordination services – linking produces and buyers in a regional geography. $850K has been committed by USDA and its federal partner agencies and each organization is expected to raise matching funds on a 2:1 basis.
