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.

How to use the holidays to push for heathy habits - aka less sugar?

Posted December 9, 2016 by Migdalia Rivera

TweetchatThis is my favorite time of year. Parrandas/caroling, and get togethers with family and friends, during this holiday season are always such a treat. But what isn't a treat is the amount of sugar eaten during the holidays. It's estimated that most people gain an average of 5 to 10 pounds! There's a reason why [...]

Keep Pounding

Posted December 9, 2016 by ruby

How Grassroots Organizing and Popular Protest Defeated NC’s Bathroom Governor As a lifelong North Carolinian, I really appreciated this data-based analysis from Tom Jensen of Public Policy Polling on how the Governor lost his re-election effort (the first to do so in NC history). First, polls show that Governor Pat McCrory's policies were widely unpopular, [...]
