Healthy Food Financing
Increasing Access to Fresh, Healthy Foods
Across the Country.
Millions of Americans Lack Access to Fresh, Healthy Foods
23.5 million Americans living in low-income areas lack access to a supermarket within a mile of their home. This makes it less likely for them to consume fresh fruits and vegetables, therefore facing higher risks of diet-related diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
Fresh, healthy foods are critical for the well-being of both an individual and a community. To reduce food deserts across the country and help communities get healthier, NCB Capital Impact has financing designed to attract retailers, producers and distributors to underserved urban and rural communities.
