The American Heart Association spent Valentines Day at the Indiana Statehouse sharing information on our policy priorities, enjoying a healthy lunch, and encouraging lawmakers to support Healthy Food Financing Initiatives!
Attendees enjoyed a heart healthy lunch with recipes inspired from the American Heart Association's Go Red cookbook and created by Chef Keith Brooks from The Ville Restaurant in Noblesville, Indiana.
Healthy Food Financing Initiatives (HFFIs) were the issue of the day. HFFIs are effective and economically sustainable solutions to help bring nourishment and jobs into communities without access to affordable, healthy foods. Senate Bill 277 bill would establish a such a fund here in Indiana. You can show your support for our efforts by visiting this site and taking action: http://act.yourethecure.org/o4LQavv
