Healthy Food America acts on science to drive change in policy and industry practice so that all people can live in places where nutritious food is easy to obtain and exposure to unhealthy products is limited.

A major focus for us is the vast amount of added sugars in our food and drinks - a primary driver of poor nutrition and chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. We track and translate the latest research on sugar and health and work alongside community leaders to provide resources that inform policies like soda taxes and healthy food incentives.
