American Heart Association Policy Statement

American Heart Association Nutrition Security Paper – 2022

In June, CCUSA Food & Nutrition lead Jane Stenson attended the American Heart Association’s Foodscape Innovation Summit, where the attached Policy statement was presented. Attendees heard from speakers across the healthcare, science, and grocery industries, as well as non-profit startups. Each presented innovative strategies to increase food and nutrition security.

The AHA’s Policy Statement defines the many components of nutrition security and outlines specific federal policies and programs that help address it. It contains many in-depth recommendations to expand and improve them.
