How to Support Fair Food Matters

Fair Food Matters appreciates your support as we serve our community. All year round, there are many ways to give. Thank you for helping us in our mission to improve access to healthy, local food in Kalamazoo. (Click here to meet some of our clients!)


Financial Contributions: Because Fair Food Matters is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your monetary donation is fully tax deductible. A receipt will be mailed to you.

In Kind: If you'd like to consider an in-kind donation of goods or services, please look over our projects and programs for possibilities, or contact us.

Supplies: Growing Matters Garden often needs supplies for the growing season. We also have occasional needs for office supplies, ingredients for the cooking classes and more. Call the FFM office.
