Pairwise and Partnership for a Healthier America Unite to Increase Food Access

To increase access to healthy, fresh, and affordable food, Pairwise, a health-focused food and agriculture company, and Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), a national nonprofit working to improve the food system, have announced a three-year partnership.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, one in six people in the US struggle to find healthy, fresh food that is within budget or easily accessible. Pairwise is determined to make a difference, utilizing CRISPR and other methods in order to provide tastier, more nutritious and accessible provisions. Soon to be available later this year, Conscious™ Greens will be available for purchase through foodservice and retail networks.

“We are pleased to partner with PHA, whose impactful work aligns so closely with the Pairwise vision of reducing barriers to fruit and vegetable consumption,” said Tom Adams, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at Pairwise. “The challenge of ensuring access to healthy food is multifaceted and complex. At Pairwise, we are using technology to reduce barriers to healthy food access. But it is also imperative that we work with other organizations that are tackling key social barriers. PHA is leading the way in innovative solutions to ensuring food equity.”

The PHA's Good Food for All program provides produce to families who face barriers to accessing affordable, healthy, and sustainable food with $75,000 annually from Pairwise. The program partners with local partners to empower long-term changes in healthy eating behaviors in communities across the country.

In addition to providing 630,000 servings of healthy fruits and vegetables through PHA's Good Food for All program, Pairwise's contribution will also support PHA's commitment to deliver 100 million servings of produce by 2025 made at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health.

“Every day, too many families around the country struggle to access healthy food. This entrenched problem must be addressed so that good food is available to everyone, no matter their zip code. We are taking the steps to solve it by working with Pairwise to make healthy food accessible for families in-need,” said Noreen Springstead, President & CEO of Partnership for a Healthier America.

Creating greater, sustained access to nutritious food will require innovative thinking and new solutions from PHA and Pairwise. Both organizations are focused on finding innovative solutions to persistent problems facing our current food system.
