The Food Shed returns

This $20,000 loan helped finance the opening of the new Food Shed location in Kitsap, Washington.

About the campaign

When we founded The Food Shed back in 2010, our objective was to promote conscious consumption by advocating local and sustainable food systems. We located ourselves on a lovely old farm in Kingston, Washington and gathered people around our table to show them exactly what our local food scene had to offer. We became known for our hospitality, beautiful pastries and slow food cafe. The community supported our classes on specialty and heirloom traditions such as humane animal processing, fermenting, preserving, and curing. We are committed to practicing sustainable distribution, production, processing, and consumption. We hope that you will support us and share in our vision.

We do this for our kids, our community, and to strengthen micro-economies.

Simply put, we’re farmers with a cafe. We’re inspired to create and serve delicious seasonal menus that come from food grown at our own farm and other area farms as well.

About Mossback Cafe

We feature local farms and producers on an ever changing seasonal menu, promoting awareness within the community of it's own food shed, the people who grow and process their food and beverages, and the bounty in their own neighborhood.

Partner with community sourced capital

Community Sourced Capital exists so that businesses can access affordable capital from their community

By connecting community members, small business owners and mission-aligned funders to the goal of creating healthy communities, we’re introducing a new purpose for financial systems, removing barriers to success for entrepreneurs, and building meaningful relationships around money.

Providing affordable capital to community businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Everyone seems to know that. What most people don't know is how important funding is to the success of a business.

Even in this day and age, most small businesses simply cannot access the funding they need to succeed. New lenders have emerged to serve this need, but many of them charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or 50 percent. These rates can compromise the stability of the businesses that ultimately provide stability to our communities.

Participate in a financial system for communities, by communities

Join a growing community of lenders regenerating their local economies through finance. Participate in a loan for a small business. Grow your business with your community. Invest in the success of your neighbor.

That's the spirit behind Community Sourced Capital's motto: Fund the world you want to live in.
