Food and drinks high in sugar, calories, and salt can cause chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. A crucial step in reducing these diet-related diseases, and obesity too, is creating food environments that support healthy choices. In Kansas, public agencies offer food and beverages to thousands of employees, community members, clients, and visitors every day, providing them an important opportunity to promote healthy options. Join our webinar to discuss procurement for governmental food service operations, including vending, cafeterias, meetings and institutional feeding sites.
