HEAL’s mission is to build our collective power to create food and farm systems that are healthy for our families, accessible and affordable for all communities, and fair to the hard-working people who grow, distribute, prepare, and serve our food — while protecting the air, water, and land we all depend on.
One plan for our food and farm system
We believe that all people and all communities should have the right and the means to produce, procure, prepare, share, and eat food that’s nutritionally and culturally appropriate, free from exploitation of themselves and any other people, and to be in their full power in harmony with the rest of the natural world.
We share the belief that a renewed food system will result in thriving local economies, better stewardship for the environment, and healthier individuals and families nationwide. And we work to turn that belief into reality through cross-community organizing, advocating for policy solutions, and holding powerful food system actors accountable for their actions.
We are bringing together groups from various sectors and are organizing campaigns in three arenas.
platform for real food
The bedrock of our principles and the policies we will actively pursue. Our Platform is our roadmap towards real food justice.
