SACRAMENTO, November 21, 2022 — The California Department of Food and Agriculture Office of Farm to Fork (CDFA-F2F) is seeking public comment on a Healthy Refrigeration Grant Program request for applications (RFA), anticipated to be released in mid-December. Public comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. PT, December 12, 2022.

Two webinars will be held to provide information about the RFA and hear public comments. An English-language webinar will be 3-4:30 p.m. November 30 and a Spanish-language webinar will be 3-4:30 p.m. December 1. Register for either webinar.

The purpose of the Healthy Refrigeration Grant Program is to improve access to healthy foods in underserved communities while promoting California-grown agriculture — through funding energy-efficient and climate-friendly refrigeration and freezer equipment in corner stores, small businesses, and food donation programs in low-income or low-food access areas throughout the state. The equipment is funded to stock California-grown fresh produce, nuts, eggs, meat and dairy products, as well as minimally processed and culturally appropriate foods.
