#SaludTues Tweetchat 11/17: How a Healthy Food Retail Environment Advances Health Equity


Healthy Food Equity
Share On Social!

Food insecurity and health disparities disproportionately affect lower income communities and communities of color. These disparities are only exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Access to healthy food should be a universal right.

It’s clear that we must reevaluate how food retail currently works in our country. We must rebuild a more equitable and just system. We can work together to promote food equity in our communities and across the country.

This tweetchat coincides with the new release of a National Research Agenda on healthy food retail, published as a Special Journal Issue.

Join #SaludTues at 1 p.m. ET on Nov. 17, 2020, to tweet about the importance of healthy food retail environments for advancing health equity.

We’ll open the floor to data, resources and your experiences as we explore:

  • What are the most urgent priorities for healthy food retail.
  • How can we support access to healthy food for groups disproportionately affected by health inequities.
  • And how the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened the gap and highlighted the need for us to act now.

Be sure to use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter and share your strategies, stories, and resources that improve access to healthy food retail.
