HFFI Telling Your Story 2017

Overview

On May 3 & 4, 2017, nearly 150 stakeholders gathered in Washington, D.C. for the Sixth Annual National Convening on Healthy Food Access to discuss the progress, impact, and future of the federal Healthy Food Financing Initiative (HFFI). 

On day two, grantees of the federal HFFI program and other stakeholders travelled to Capitol Hill to share stories about healthy food access projects and efforts with Congressional Members and staff. This handout includes key tips and strategies utilized by attendees to help their elected officials learn about the critical program and its impact in their respective states and districts.
