California FreshWorks Case Study
This report examines the development and implementation of FreshWorks. It is one of three in a series of reports released as part of the evaluation of FreshWorks. The other two reports–The Social and Economic Impacts of FreshWorks and the California FreshWorks Food Access Report—can be found at www.calendow.org/freshworks.
In recognition of these community health challenges related to food access, TCE launched the California FreshWorks program (FreshWorks) in 2011 in partnership with a broad coalition of public and private capital providers and thought partners. FreshWorks is a financing initiative designed to bring grocery stores and markets that offer fresh produce and other innovative forms of healthy food retail to underserved communities.
