ReFresh - Scaling Access to Healthy Food

Commitment by

The Reinvestment Fund

In 2014, The Reinvestment Fund (TRF) committed to significantly expand its ReFresh initiative by working in partnership with CDFIs, capital providers, policymakers and other healthy food access stakeholders to leverage $100 million of investments for healthy food projects nationally over the next three years. TRF will also work with partners to update its Limited Supermarket Analysis, a food access mapping tool that displays areas of the nation where Americans do not live within a reasonable travel distance of a supermarket and provide in-depth, geographically targeted market analyses to better identify and target communities for fresh food access. Through these efforts, nearly 3,000 construction and retail jobs will be created.
