Have you wanted to get healthier menus in your local schools, hospitals, or other institutions but didn’t know where to start? Now you can use Balanced’s new resources to lead healthy-menu campaigns where you live. Balanced is the nonprofit public health and nutrition advocacy group that NutritionFacts helped launch last year, and they just released their Community Advocacy Program.
This program provides resources for advocates to lead successful healthy menu campaigns in their communities. It includes a downloadable advocacy guide and resource toolkits, an optional 30-day training series, support from the Balanced team, connection to a network of like-minded advocates across the country, and specially tailored resources for each campaign.
To get the toolkit and sign up for the training series, or donate to sponsor an advocate, visit balanced.org/lead
