Corporate Commitments

2023 Progress Report

At PHA, we’re strategic, informed conveners at the intersection of food policy and public health. We’re inspiring organizations from every sector - government, business, philanthropy, and nonprofits - to use their power to advance health outcomes around the country. We all need to stand together to build a better food future.

Partner Spotlight: Instacart

Instacart believes that everyone should have access to nutritious food, and that technology can break down barriers that have historically prevented too many communities from getting the nourishment they need. That’s why they have pledged to bring 10 million servings of produce to nutrition insecure families across the US by 2025 through fundraising campaigns, joint programming, and new technology offerings as part of their Instacart Health initiative.

Instacart is already halfway to meeting their goal, thanks to our joint efforts to expand the Good Food At Home program in 2023. Our Indianapolis pilot proved that produce stipends – delivered through Instacart Health Fresh Funds – can lead to sustained healthy eating habits and improved food security. Building upon the learnings from this launch – like 78% of participants saying produce credits helped their family build a healthy habit – we expanded the program in December to over 1,000 families across Washington DC, Denver, Milwaukee and Englewood, New Jersey.

Instacart also joined forces for the first time ever with other mission-driven PHA partners Dole, Olipop, Core Hydration and Mott’s to launch a consumer fundraising campaign on Giving Tuesday this year. Through the combined generosity of these partners, Instacart was able to unlock 1M servings of fruits and vegetables for PHA!

Partner Spotlight: Dole Packaged Foods

As part of the White House Conference on Hunger, Health and Nutrition in 2022, Dole Packaged Foods launched the Sunshine for All® Cities program to enhance food and health equity across the US. As part of that program, they introduced the Good Stuff Kiosks pilot, a system of free-standing refrigerated food kiosks to be placed at Boys & Girls Clubs to provide daily access to healthy, nutritious food to thousands of families and seniors at reduced prices.

The custom designed Good Stuff Kiosk features adjustable shelving and a refrigeration unit that accommodates a wide variety of shelf stable fruits, vegetables, whole grains, rice, beans, select protein options and fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy products for sale at reduced rates.

A motion-activated video player on the Kiosk features custom content centered around healthy eating and the QR Code on the face of the Kiosk links users directly to recipes and cooking tips to help even the novice cook make easy, affordable, healthy meals and snacks.

This summer, the program expanded to Jackson, MS and Merced County, CA. Funded by the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation and Dole Packaged Foods, and in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs and PHA, together we launched six new Good Stuff Kiosks alongside nutrition and cooking skills classes. You can read more about the launch of the Good Stuff Kiosk at Cesar E. Chavez Middle School in Planada, CA here.

By 2028, the Good Stuff Kiosk program plans to grow to include more than 1,000 community hubs across the United States, with the potential to reach more than 3 million families each day.

Partner Spotlight: Novo Nordisk

Novo Nordisk is committed to reducing the burden of chronic disease in underserved communities through supporting improved access, visibility and consumer support of nutritious food. That’s why they are funding our work in the Mississippi Delta to get more locally-grown fruits and vegetables onto people’s tables and into their bellies.

In summer 2023, PHA worked with Mileston Cooperative Association to distribute boxes of fresh produce to underserved families in the Delta. In total, 350 families accessed over 255,000 servings of local, Delta-grown produce over 12 weeks.

97% of the participants said that the program helped them stretch their food budget and 88% said there are more vegetables they enjoy eating as a result.

Novo Nordisk’s support isn’t just limited to the Mississippi Delta. Their generous funding is also helping PHA and our partners at the International Fresh Produce Association build a collective impact model to double consumption of produce in 15 cities by 2030. These Good Food Cities will serve as a playbook that can be shared with other cities across the country, helping to ensure that everyone, in every zip code has access to good food that builds health.
