Petition Text

We urge federal, state, and local policymakers to support nutrition security and food equity policies across the country. For example, the New York City Council and the Mayor are close to passing the Sweet Truth Act, which would require chain restaurants to place warning labels on menu items containing more than 50 grams of added sugars. The bill is a much-needed step towards helping reduce diet-related conditions and creating a healthier and more knowledgeable New York City.  

Further, the Biden administration's national strategy on hunger, nutrition, and health makes important strides toward a more equitable, healthy food system. The strategy represents an opportunity to address critical food systems issues, ranging from food and nutrition security to the unequal distribution of diet-related chronic diseases in the population. The prospect of resolving these challenges through coordinated government action that engages multiple stakeholders is exciting but highlights the importance of ensuring that diverse communities and populations are represented.
