Making the healthy choice the easy choice

A healthy diet is key to maintaining good health. But many low-income children and families — those at greatest risk for preventable diseases like diabetes and heart disease — don’t have access to healthy foods and beverages in their neighborhoods. We work on a variety of policy strategies that make it easier for everyone to access healthy foods and beverages at home, at work, at school, and in stores.

Get started with the resources we've highlighted below, and learn more about all of our areas of work.

Sugary Drinks
Limiting Sugary Drinks
Sugary drinks like soda and sports drinks are a proven driver of diabetes, obesity, and health inequities. Use our sugary drink tools to protect your community from Big Soda companies.
Food Systems
Healthy Food
We are what we eat. And we all know that a nutritious diet is important for health. But many folks can’t access or afford healthy food in their neighborhood. Our tools can help create healthy food systems.
Alcohol
Alcohol Retailers
Excessive alcohol use harms individuals and families in every community. For neighborhoods with many alcohol retailers, density restrictions can help address this public health problem.
