Writing About the HEAL Food Alliance

Writing about the HEAL (Health, Environment, Agriculture, Labor) 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.

The HEAL Food Alliance was founded in 2017 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. Over the past three years, the HEAL Food Alliance has grown to 55 member organizations representing over 2 million rural and urban farmers, ranchers, fishers, farm and food chain workers, scientists, public health, environmental, and animal rights advocates, policy experts, indigenous leaders, community organizers, and activists explicitly working together to address racial justice and corporate control of our 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.
