ImpactAlpha, February 16 – NourishedRx launched in 2019 to address a gap in the U.S.’s healthcare system: diet and nutrition. The health tech venture aims to make “nutritious and culturally relevant food accessible for health plan providers’ most vulnerable members,” said founder Lauren Driscoll. It provides policyholders with nutrition advice and even grocery delivery.

Sustainable agrifood investor S2G Ventures led NourishedRx’s $6 million seed round.

“NourishedRx is targeting the most vulnerable populations, folks that can benefit the most from the nutritional improvements,” S2G’s Sanjeev Krishnan told ImpactAlpha. “It’s creating a flywheel effect for a better food system, improved patient health and lower healthcare costs.”

Route 66 Ventures, Connecticut Innovations, Primetime Partners and individual investors participated in the round.
