Eliminating Food Deserts in Alabama

by Julie H. on Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Last month, the American Heart Association, along with volunteers and partners working on Food Access throughout the South, attended the Voices for Healthy Kids Regional Advocacy Training in Atlanta, Georgia.  Alabama was well represented with partners attending from the American Heart Association, Emerging ChangeMakers, United Way of Central Alabama, Alabama Food Policy Council, Eat South, Voices for Alabama’s Children, and Food Bank of North Alabama. 

The conversation will continue this week, when the Voices for Healthy Kids team comes to Alabama to meet with American Heart Association staff and local partners working on obesity and Food Access issues in Birmingham and Montgomery.  Click here to learn more about Voices for Healthy Kids, a new collaboration between the American Heart Association and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that focuses on policies addressing childhood obesity.
