Webinars related to food systems and/or community development.

The Healthy Food Policy Project is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, June 13, 1-2pm Eastern Time, about its online policy database, which can help communities identify local laws that can improve access to healthy food across the food system.



Towns, cities and counties are using law and policy to support healthy eating in many ways. These laws can focus on socially disadvantaged groups, and approach health holistically to include environmental and economic goals. The webinar will shed light on how the database was developed, the range of policies it includes, and presenters will demonstrate how it can be used to support healthy eating policy work across a wide array of communities.
