RSF Social Finance Makes Direct Equity Investment in Farmigo; United Health Foundation Unveils 22nd Annual America’s Health Rankings - Health Minute for December 21, 2012
RSF Social Finance has made a direct equity investment in Farmigo, an online farmer’s market that connects workplaces to local farms to provide a personalized marketplace for local, healthy food. Hundreds of farms in 25 states now use Farmigo’s technology to manage their community supported agricultural subscriptions. Farmigo has connected them to 3,000 delivery sites. The investment is RSF’s first direct equity investment in a stand-alone company. Since 1984, the organization has made over $275 million in loans and $100 million in grants to non-profit and for-profit social enterprises working in the areas of food and agriculture, education & the arts, and ecological stewardship.
United Health Foundation has unveiled its 22nd annual America’s Health Rankings to provide a national look at health problems. This year’s health rankings found that Americans are living longer, but many are living sicker. One trend is the high rate of Americans who live a sedentary lifestyle outside of work: the report found more than 26 percent of the country is physically inactive. Inactivity is cited as a major cause of large increases in hypertension and diabetes, and the obesity epidemic. Obesity causes preventable diseases that rack up $66 billion per year in health care costs, and cost the economy between $390 billion and $580 billion in lost productivity each year, according to the report. Researchers pulled data from agencies including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Census Bureau and American Medical Association to come up with the annual list.
