Affordable, Healthy Food = Good Public Health:  
Promising practices and systems change strategies to improve access to healthy food
Friday, Sept. 28, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. EDT

A food system that supports access to affordable, healthy and sustainably produced foods is essential in promoting overall health in all communities. This is especially important in low-income communities that are surrounded by food deserts (lack of access to healthy food) or food swamps (over-abundance of cheap, unhealthy foods), or are negatively affected by food production methods in their communities. 

This webinar will give an overview of the basics of how our food system affects health and then will explore three innovative strategies that are improving access to affordable, healthy food.
