Alameda County Nutrition & Physical Activity Policy and Guidelines

On October 16, 2009 the Alameda County of Supervisors adopted the "Nutrition and Physical Activity Policy & Guidelines" which revise County practices and policies to promote healthy options for employees, visitors to County facilities, and participants in County meetings and events. The guidelines provide County employees and residents with healthy nutrition options as well as opportunities and incentives to stay physically active and participate in wellness activities.

Here are a number of resource materials that have been developed to support the implementation of the policy for all employees and residents who desire more specific information on choosing healthy options and specifically for County personnel who order food for meetings and events. Tips for waste reduction and sustainability efforts are also included.
