ANCHOR Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City, OK
Targeted location(s): Oklahoma City

The Oklahoma City, OK ANCHOR campaign is focused on increasing the number of people with access to healthy food and beverage options through procurement initiatives. The primary focus is to work with the local city government to adopt a healthy food and beverage vending initiative on all city-owned property. The AHA will collaborate with city officials and food and beverage vendors to ensure that food products meet the nutritional standards set forth by the AHA guidelines. As a result, employees and visitors will have access to healthier options, which will foster continued support for healthy food environments. Additionally, the campaign is working with metro corner store owners to expand the healthy food and beverage options available in their stores. This effort will improve accessibility and affordability of nutritious foods and beverages in underserved communities.
