Free From Market Raises $2.1M Seed Round


Free From Market, the first patient-driven digital platform that enables lower-income Americans living with chronic health conditions to order the diet-specific foods and support they require, has announced a $2.1 million seed investment. The funding will allow the company to improve its proprietary technology platform and expand its service delivery model in order to provide affordable, inclusive access to personalized foods, telenutrition, and data that will improve health outcomes.

Bluestein Ventures led the round, which was joined by Acumen America, Beta Boom, KCRise Fund, 1st Course Capital, and AssetBlue Ventures. Furthermore, the company was selected as a recipient of the Google for Startups Black Founders Fund in 2022.

This capital investment and support will also assist FFM in expanding its reach with managed care plans, providers, and community-based organizations in order to quantify the efficacy of “food is medicine” interventions for treating critical health conditions. FFM offers bulk ordering for businesses and direct-to-door delivery of meals, produce, and shelf-stable, brand-name grocery items, as well as complementary telenutrition support.

Free From Market is the first patient-driven digital health platform to provide personalized food access and selection, integrated telenutrition and educational support, as well as the ability to measure health outcomes for individuals living with chronic conditions where food is the standard of care. FFM partners with healthcare payors, providers, nonprofits, and other organizations to offer their members and patients “food is medicine” interventions to  treat health conditions. FFM’s mission is to help all Americans manage their health through food, regardless of income or zip code.
