The Greater Southeast Affiliate Advocacy Team fights heart disease and stroke in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Puerto Rico.
On Tuesday, May 13, the American Heart Association will host a kick-off event with VOICES for Alabama's Children for individuals and organizations interested in improving food access in under served areas across Alabama. The free event will be held from 11 am - 1 pm at the American Heart Association's Birmingham office.
During kick-off the event, participants will have the opportunity to learn how healthy food financing can improve access to healthy foods; hear stories from folks who have worked on the issue in neighboring states; discuss next steps for healthy food access in Alabama; and join a community of advocates working for healthy change.
RSVP by Friday, May 9 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
