Fostering Healthier Food Environments in Alberta Recreation Facilities to Support Community Wellness
Presenters: Lisa McLaughlin and Janet Naclia, ARPA
Through its Communities ChooseWell initiative, the ARPA has been encouraging the recreation sector to develop healthier food environments in their facilities to support community wellness. ARPA developed the RecFocus Healthy Food Environments (HFE) module, sponsored by Alberta Health for a limited time, to support widespread uptake by communities and gather comprehensive data on the state of recreation food environments in Alberta.
This session explores the results of this module. It also focuses on how the HFE module builds on a growing interest in and the development of strategic collaborative initiatives to work with the recreation sector in Alberta to develop healthier food environments.
