Writing About the HEAL Food Alliance

Writing about the Health, Environment, Agriculture, Labor (HEAL) Food Alliance can be confusing at times. The following guide is intended as a quick reference to help reporters understand the various organizations and structures that comprise the HEAL Food Alliance.

By bringing together farmers, food service laborers, scientists, policy experts, community organizers, and activists, the HEAL Food Alliance seeks effective policy change in our nation's food system, from the corner store to Capitol Hill. Formed in 2015 by the Movement Strategy Center, the Union of Concerned Scientists, the Real Food Challenge, the Food Chain Workers Alliance, and the National Black Food and Justice Alliance, HEAL is comprised of an Anchor Team, Steering Council and network of member organizations who are working together to transform our country’s food system.

The HEAL Food Alliance is based in Oakland, CA and its Director is Navina Khanna. You can find information on our past and current campaigns at our “Our Work” page.
