Alameda County Public Health Department, Nutrition Services is proud to kick off our 7th annual Soda Free Summer Campaign and again partner with six Bay Area sugar savvy counties to spread the message. Our campaign has inspired thousands of residents and hundreds of organizations to make a lasting commitment to good health by reducing or eliminating sweetened beverages and sugary foods.
We’re also thrilled that similar campaigns to educate and inspire the public about sugary drinks continue to pop up across the state, and across the nation! Check it out: from the West Coast to the East Coast and all areas in between, Americans are getting sugar savvy and taking action to create healthier communities!
That’s right – no matter what these campaigns are called, we’re all on the same team and we want YOU to join us. Isn’t it time to RETHINK YOUR DRINK and CHOOSE WATER?
