America Walks FREE Webinar: Fuel for Active Bodies: Increasing Access to Healthy Foods
When: May 8, 2019 at 2pm ET/11 am PT
According to a report by the USDA, approximately 23.5 million people in the US live in food deserts, areas where people live more than a mile from a market or store that sells fresh produce, whole grains, and other foods essential to a balanced diet. Join us on May 8, 2019 at 2pm Eastern, 11am Pacific for Fuel for Active Bodies: Increasing Access to Healthy Foods to learn more about the issue and how communities are working to increase access, via walking and active transportation, to healthy food in their own backyards. This webinar is intended for those just starting out on the walking path as well as those interested in learning more about the topic.
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:
•Explain how access to healthy food and walkability are interrelated.
•Describe policies and programs that are supporting healthy food access and walkability.
•Discuss local community efforts and ways walking advocates should be engaging on topics related to this work.
