Increasing access to healthy, affordable food
About 10% of families in the US face hunger and food insecurity — defined as a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. Due to the persistent effects of redlining and segregation, food insecurity is more prevalent in Black and Hispanic communities, particularly for families with children.
Our healthy food financing work
BlueHub Loan Fund finances projects that provide residents easy access to affordable, healthy food and health-promoting services.
We look to partner on healthy food real estate projects that are part of broad efforts to promote resident health and that align with neighborhood revitalization plans, such as:
- For-profit and nonprofit grocery stores
- Food bank facilities
- Farm-to-market centers
