Did you know? For over one million California residents access to fresh produce is more than a 20-minute drive from their homes. In these “food desert” neighborhoods, higher rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and many other chronic illnesses are a fact of life. That’s why the California FreshWorks Fund was created—to increase access to healthy food in underserved communities, spur economic development that supports healthy communities, and inspire innovation in healthy food retailing. This unique fund represents a terrific opportunity for SOCAP11 attendees to demonstrate the possibilities of people-powered capital—enabling everyday investors to combine money with meaning to create transformational change.
