Give Everyone a Choice of Safe, Healthy Food
Our food system should provide affordable food with nutritious ingredients, free from harmful contaminants. For many families, eating healthy is a daily challenge. Call for policies that help eliminate food desserts and bring healthy food to all neighborhoods and schools. Support measures like menu labeling that help people make healthier choices. Start a community garden. Volunteer for a local food bank!
Encourage Healthy Behaviors and Choices
Avoid using tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. Eat healthy foods and exercise. We need to make these and other healthy choices for ourselves. But it doesn't stop there - we need to work together to create communities that make the healthy choice the easy choice for everyone.
Create Healthy Environments
Our health is connected to our environments. What happens upstream to our environments at work, school, and home affects our health downstream. Support policies that protect the air we breathe indoors and outdoors and the clean water we drink as well as those that help protect our health from natural and manmade weather events and disasters.
