The American Heart Association strongly supports the Healthy Food Financing Initiative (HFFI) that the La Semilla Food Center proposed at the Las Cruces City Council meeting on Monday, September 25th. Healthy Food Financing is a policy solution that creates jobs, boosts local economies and can help to reverse detrimental state health trends. Healthy Food Financing programs support grocers and corner stores that want to open, expand and improve healthy food options in underserved areas. Take a minute to send an email to your Las Cruces City Councilor and show your support today! Click HERE to get started!
As we continue the fight for HFFI in Las Cruces and strive to make the healthy choice the easy choice in Las Cruces we will need you help! Council members need to know that there is broad support for this innovative and proven initiative so be on the lookout for future alerts as this policy moves forward!
