Tackling Difficult-to-Crack Healthy Eating Policies

Sacramento, California

September 29 - 30, 2015

Over the past two decades, health grantmakers have become more engaged in supporting policies that promote healthy eating in communities, schools, and homes across the country. While a great deal of progress has been made, the next phase of policy work brings new challenges, opportunities, and questions for both health funders and policymakers.

Grantmakers In Health (GIH) invites you to attend a strategic conversation delving into some of the more challenging healthy eating policy options being considered by state and local policymakers. Together, funders, experts, and practitioners will focus on three topics growing in importance:

  • policies that reduce consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages,
  • child care policies that promote life-long healthy eating and nutrition, and
  • policies that incentivize increased access to healthy foods and reduced access to unhealthy foods.

The strategy session will take place September 29-30 in Sacramento, California, at the Embassy Suites Sacramento-Riverfront Promenade. There will be a networking dinner and presentation by Harold Goldstein, Executive Director of the California Center for Public Health Advocacy, on the first night, followed by a full day of presentations and discussions. 

Support for this meeting is provided by The Colorado Health Foundation and The Horizon Foundation.
