About the Greenbelt Fund

Making local food the first choice for Ontarians.

The Greenbelt Fund changes the way we eat food in Ontario. Our innovative investments get more local food onto the plates of Ontarians. We work with businesses, institutions and NGOs to make Ontario’s farmers the first choice for consumers.

The Fund’s work has:

  1. Generated a 13-fold return on our investments;
  2. Permanently changed the food value chain; and
  3. Improved local food awareness and education across the province.

As a non-profit, the Greenbelt Fund is supported by public and private sources. The Local Food Investment Fund grant program is funded by the Government of Ontario and administered independently by the Greenbelt Fund.
