Food Service Guidelines

FSG Local Action Institute

Food and beverages are available to purchase in almost all places where people spend their days including at work, in school, at the park and other places where daily activities take place. People are increasingly purchasing and consuming food away from home as many U.S. employees have cafeterias and vending available in their workplace, and millions of Americans eat from cafeterias and concessions on a daily basis. Food service guidelines represent a voluntary set of best practices that ensure safe, healthy food options are available. Implementing food service guidelines in community anchor institutions can increase healthy food options and make a significant impact on community health.
