Charleston Food Startup Featured at San Francisco Social Capital Conference

Charleston, SC - Local Foods (FreshlyLocal.com) is a new website startup created by Dr. Phillip S. Davis, a Greenville native and graduate of the University of SC. Dr. Davis earned his medical degree at MUSC in Charleston in 2004 and is leveraging the local and organic food movements as tools to help fight obesity and chronic disease. With help from his wife Angel French and colleagues in Charleston, the team launched their social venture in 2012 as a resource for helping people eat right to live healthier lives.

Their efforts have caught the attention of several national groups working to support socially focused startups, and Davis was just selected to attend the Social Capital (SOCAP) Conference in San Francisco. SOCAP connects entrepreneurs, innovators and investors to help build organizations with significant social impact. Local Foods will receive a scholarship to attend SOCAP and its associated business accelerator free of charge, and will be a featured startup at the event September 1st - 6th, 2013.

The Local Foods mission is to build America's healthy food network, promote sustainability, and empower people to make intelligent choices about the foods they eat.

FreshlyLocal.com offers a free searchable database of restaurants serving locally grown vegetables, fruits and organic foods, along with produce markets, organic farms and specialty food producers. The site also provides free nutrition education, background info on the local food movement, the certified organic label and other food topics. Future plans include an e-commerce platform that aggregates food producers all in one place to make purchasing easier for businesses and restaurants. For now, the team is focused on growing the directory, building their brand and providing free, evidence based nutrition information, hoping they can help people take less medicine by eating more real food.
