Being the voice for healthy eating and active living policies is an important part of Wholespire’s mission. With the help of our grassroots network, we work with decision makers to strengthen and improve access to healthy food and safe places to be active through policy changes. We also offer training for partners and organizations who want to engage in grassroots advocacy and strengthen their advocacy skills.
Oftentimes, we partner with organizations and government agencies by showing our support of priority issues and General Assembly bills that are important to eliminating barriers to access and making access to healthy choices fair and reasonable. You can keep track of the issues and bills that we follow. Updates will be posted here when the General Assembly is in session.
