|Reviewers Comments: ||This action packet could be pertinent to work sites, school events, professional meetings, church groups, or any other gatherings of people where food is served. It outlines six steps on how to change the food being served to provide healthier options. It could be enacted on a small scale, for example at a gathering with a few people, or on a large scale, such as changing a corporate policy on food being served at meetings.
The packet includes many resources to help reach the goal, including a short Power Point presentation and script to help gather interested parties. A flyer is included to help promote interest and gather people to attend the session. There is also a sample press release, fact sheets, and resources and references to help advocate the cause. Some of the information on the fact sheets is specific to Maine. The packet is written in clear, simple language, and is easy to follow.
Action packets are all available online at the web site below. They can be downloaded as a complete packet or in sections.
