Your Chance to Help

February 11, 2021

Finland Food Chain is working to develop a community based wild rice processing facility, and we are in the running for a generous grant to provide the funds to prepare the selected site to house the processing equipment we obtained last fall.  NE Minnesota Local Farm and Food Projects is part of the Northland Food Network and represents a broad group of farm and food-focused organizations in NE MN.  They are offering grants to 3 finalists to fund a shovel-ready project as well as a variety of other support.  Phase one was a written proposal that was submitted January 22, and well received.  

Friday, Feb. 19th from 2-4pm we will participate in Phase Two, a 2 hour open zoom meeting during which each finalist will conduct a 4 minute video presentation of their project, followed by up to 6 minutes of Q&A.   

Those who join the meeting and watch all 7 presentations will be able to ask questions and vote on which projects will be funded!  If you or someone you know has time and can join us, please do.  It will be interesting to hear the 7 proposals, and this is your opportunity to add your voice to the decision!
