Create a Healthy Food Awareness campaign that includes:

  • Strategies for selection and preparation of healthy food that is cost- and time- competitive with manufactured food.
  • A uniform curriculum associated with selecting and preparing nutritious food for use in schools, recreation centers, senior centers, technical/trade schools, farmers markets, and anywhere people might go to learn.
  • Strategies to link training for unemployed people and welfare-to-work work programs with opportunities for living wage jobs in urban food-related businesses.
  • “Edible Schoolyards”, a school-based program which integrates nutrition and gardening to raise awareness about the connection between healthy food choices and locally grown fresh produce.
  • Expansion of farm-to-school programs.
  • Farm-to-institution programs that offer healthy food choices to hospitals, universities, prisons, and businesses.
