Alabama is one of the least healthy states in the U.S. It's ranked 46th out of 50 by the United Health Foundation and lags behind only Mississippi in terms of percentage of obese adults (32.3). Concerned by their state's poor nutrition--and, in particular, by the lack of access to healthful, local foods--entrepreneurs Jen Barnett and Sam Brasseale have launched Freshfully, an online marketplace that gives Alabamians information about and access to better-for-you foods. The site offers an online grocery store, local food guides, and healthful recipes for preparing fresh foods. Check it out here.
