State Initiatives Supporting Healthier Food Retail: An Overview of the National Landscape

Date of Review: June, 2020

This resource is a brief overview of state policies addressing the issue of access to healthier food, across the US. I t provides a description of the key characteristics of initiatives in the states where legislation or regulations have been enacted. This could be used in an advocacy curriculum as a resource for learners in the area of state/community solutions to poor access to healthy foods. It is about a decade old so does not show the current state of legislation. –Barb Bayldon, MD, NCEAS
