Bush Foundation Grant

In 2015 a group of Finlanders applied for a grant to fund a food system, and while that grant application was not approved, it started a group process that would grow into the project we now know as the Finland Food Chain.

After that first rejection, the group of Finlanders reassessed the project, reached out to more community members to help envision how a food system in Finland could work, and applied for a Community Innovation Grant, this time through the Bush Foundation. This new grant was approved, and the Finland Food Chain was born.

Below are the documents created and submitted to the Bush Foundation in the process of applying for the grant:
