We’re pleased to announce the second year of our Farm-to-Fork Festival Vendor Impact Grant in partnership with Bank of America.

As part of Visit Sacramento’s diversity, equity, and inclusion Neighborhood Farm-to-Fork program, this grant has been established specifically for food and agricultural businesses that are minority-owned, ethnically diverse- and/or LGBTQ-owned. It’s designed to provide more opportunity for participation from businesses or individuals who have been historically underrepresented at Sacramento’s annual Farm-to-Fork Festival and to provide a more inclusive experience for all festivalgoers.  

The Vendor Impact Grant will be awarded to ten (10) small businesses and organizations majority-owned by anyone who identifies as minority/person(s) of color and/or LGBTQ; has not previously participated as a Farm-to-Fork Festival vendor; is not a previous recipient of the grant; demonstrates a financial need; and agrees to abide by the Farm-to-Fork Guidelines.

This grant funds participation at the Farm-to-Fork Street Festival for Saturday, Sept. 24, 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., taking place on Capitol Mall.

The award decision will be made by a DEI committee which will consist of a Bank of America representative, Visit Sacramento staff, and Visit Sacramento stakeholders.

Deadline to submit application: August 12, 2022.
