With diabetes rates on the rise, and over half of adults and teens in the state either overweight or obese, increasing the availability of healthy foods can greatly improve the
health of our communities. CPEHN’s spring convening series, An Appetite for Equity: Ensuring Access to Healthy Foods, will focus on best practices and advocacy strategies to increase access to healthy foods in our schools, workplaces, and neighborhoods.

CPEHN’s spring convening, An Appetite for Equity: Ensuring Access to Healthy Foods, is just a few weeks away!

Focusing on best practices and advocacy strategies, An Appetite for Equity: Ensuring Access to Healthy Foods will provide participants with:

  • Policy solutions to increase access to healthy foods in communities of color
  • Examples of promising practices for improving access in local communities
  • Opportunities to take action and mobilize on federal, state, and local efforts to advance healthy food policy
