WHAT IS NYSHEPA?

nyshepaNYSHEPA is a new statewide alliance dedicated to improving policy and practices that promote healthy eating and physical activity. Our vision is to create a statewide environment where all children and adults are eating healthy food and participating in daily physical activity to promote lifelong wellness. Membership is open to any non-profit or public sector organization that is not associated with the food or beverage industry, or to individuals supportive of the goals.

Together, we can make more of a difference!
