A Healthy Vending Message from Jim!

My name is Jim Myers, and I am the Chair of the New Mexico State Advocacy Committee for the AHA. You may have seen a few news stories about a resolution that was introduced by Albuquerque City Councilors Pat Davis and Brad Winter that would promote healthier food and beverage options in vending machines in city-owned buildings.

My name is Jim Myers, and I am the Chair of the New Mexico State Advocacy Committee for the AHA. You may have seen a few news stories about a resolution that was introduced by Albuquerque City Councilors Pat Davis and Brad Winter that would promote healthier food and beverage options in vending machines in city-owned buildings.

I wanted to take a moment to let you know how important this resolution is, and ask you to take action in support of healthier food and beverage options!

Each and every day, we wake up with the intention to live the healthiest life possible, and then the challenges of life get in the way. We miss our morning work out, leave the house quickly while forgetting lunch, or we simply do not stick to making the healthiest choices at lunch because the choice is not always available when leading a busy life.

Resolution 16-52 is aimed at helping to make the healthy choice the easy choice by offering healthier food and beverage options in vending machines in city-owned buildings across Albuquerque.

The resolution will be heard in the City Council Finance Committee on June 13th, and we need you to email your City Councilor and let them know that you support this important policy and appreciate their efforts in trying to make the HEALTHY choice the EASY choice.

CLICK HERE to take action on this issue today! 

 

Thank you for your time and support,
Jim Myers
AHA Advocate
