Healthy Food, Local Jobs, Strong Communities


The American Heart and American Stroke Association was excited to partner with MA Public Health Association as part of the Voices for Healthy Kids Healthy Food Financing Campaign for the “Healthy Food, Local Jobs, Strong Communities” which took place on Tuesday March 31st. The briefing helped provide some education on how our state could benefit from the successful implementation of the Massachusetts Food Trust Program, which was established by the legislature as part of the 2014 Environmental Bond Bill. The briefing featured leaders from across the country who have established similar successful programs and have benefitted from these program, including Sajan Philip of the New York Healthy Food & Healthy Communities Fund and Dwayne Boudreax of Circle Food Store in New Orleans.
