Our nation is sick.
The American diet is to blame.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
We eat too many of the wrong foods and not enough of the right foods.
Ultra-processed foods make up nearly 60% of the US diet.
Only 1 in 10 adults meets the US Dietary Guidelines recommendations for fruits and vegetables.
Poor diet is the leading risk factor for death in the US.
1/5 deaths in America in 2018 were caused by dietary risks. While food is a primary cause of disease, it can also be the solution to disease prevention.
The diet-related disease epidemic is growing rapidly.
Diet-related diseases cost the US trillions of dollars each year in direct health care spending and lost productivity. The costs are rising.
Solving the Problem
Fixing the broken food system.
Accessibility to fresh, whole, delicious food is the answer to our nation’s greatest public health threat. Food, the very thing that's making us sick, can become our prescription to health.
Knowledge is power and is key to reclaiming our nation’s health. Awareness of food’s impact on health is cornerstone to mobilize a national movement necessary to advance systemic food system improvement.
