WEBINAR: Healthy Food on Government Property


WEBINAR: Healthy Food on Government Property 
Thursday, September 6
12:00 - 12:30 pm PDT / 3:00 - 3:30 pm EST

Establishing nutrition guidelines for foods purchased with public funds and served on government property or provided through government programs is emerging as a promising, low-cost approach for addressing nutrition and obesity.

With healthier guidelines for government-purchased food, state and local agencies can help improve the eating habits of staff and visitors, influence food company practices and formulations, and help shape social norms more broadly.

This 30-minute webinar will discuss food procurement policies and explore how states and localities are addressing challenges and promoting the acceptance of healthier food guidelines.

Speakers:

  • Angie Cradock, ScD, Senior Research Scientist, Harvard School of Public Health
  • Karyl Thomas Rattay, MD, MS, Director of the Delaware Division of Public Health
  • Mollie Poland, MPP, Policy Analyst, Nemours Health and Prevention Services
  • Robin Schepper, Senior Advisor to the Nutrition Initiative, Bipartisan Policy Center (moderator)
