Good Food Force

The Good Food Force: building healthier families and communities! 
Good Food Force (GFF) Volunteers are real-life superheroes who take action in their schools and communities, and/or on their blogs and online networks, to advocate for healthier kids and families. Volunteers do what they want, when they want. There's no minimum commitment! 
This year the Good Food Force is taking action around three important moments in the fight against childhood obesity:
  • Pushing back against junk food marketing to kids
  • Getting soda out of kids meals
  • Ensuring children have access to healthy school foods
Good Food Force Volunteers get: 
  • The latest information and breaking news on healthy schools, kids and communities via weekly emails and our Facebook Group.
  • Tips, talking points and resources for bringing these conversations to your community. 
  • Advice and encouragement from other Volunteers. We love to feature Volunteers via social media and our website, too! 
  • Special invites to online and on-the-ground events and training opportunities.

New Texas Law Aims to Improve Treatment of Pregnant Women in Jail

Posted September 30, 2015 by Rachel Roth

A new law took effect this month in Texas to open a window onto jail conditions for pregnant women.
