from the NANA Coalition, DHPE forwarding to members for participation...

Hi All,

We are building on some initial NANA work around procurement to form a NANA group to work on model vending machine standards for foods and beverages as part of a Healthy Public Places (HPP) movement. The name Healthy Public Places is replacing the term procurement as it better encompasses implementation of policies that increase the availability and accessibility of healthy food and beverage options in public venues. These public venues include government buildings, highway rest stops, prisons, public hospitals, parks and recreation facilities, senior programs, libraries, universities and colleges, and worksites.

As Co-Chairs, we encourage you to participate on this group to review draft model vending machine standards and create a final model to be shared as a resource. The group will meet initially by phone and via email, starting in June 2012. The group will evolve with the need to create other models, including a model state/local vending bill, a conferences and meetings policy that includes physical activity breaks, etc. We are starting with vending since there is interest and activity from states, counties, cities and other locales.

The first call is scheduled for Thursday, June 28, 2012 from 1:30 – 3:00 PM (EST). Dial +1 (510) 201-0302, Access Code 375-024-022. If you are interested in participating on the NANA Healthy Public Places (HPP) group, please RSVP to Lori Kaley at lkaley@cspinet.org or (202) 777-8358 by June 21, 2012. Once the group has been formed, only those NANA members participating will receive regular email regarding the group. Updates will be provided to the full NANA coalition during NANA calls and meetings. Please let either Lori or Jennifer know if you have any questions or need more information. Jennifer can be reached at jweber@nemours.org or (202) 649-4416.

Thank you and we look forward to working with you on this exciting initiative!
