Making the healthy choice the easy choice

A healthy diet is key to maintaining good health. Well-designed food systems positively shape the health, environmental, social, and economic outcomes of neighborhoods and communities. We work on a variety of policy strategies that advance health equity through each component of the food system and that ensure access to healthy, affordable foods and beverages.
