BANPAC Healthy Worksite Wellness

BANPAC is working to sustain many years of rethink your drink educational and social marketing efforts through our organizational practice and policy change campaign, called Pledge the Practice, Pass the Policy! our efforts are intended to support organizations so that:
  • Youth who have participated in sugar savvy workshops and are reducing or eliminating sugary drinks aren’t faced with those very beverages in their after school youth and sports programs,
  • Low income community residents who are trying to reduce added sugars don’t have to face a table full of sugary drinks at programs and meetings in their communities, and
  • People who have learned to reduce added sugars at work aren’t faced with sugary drinks in every meeting, at events, and in the cafeteria and vending machines.
BANPAC's Pledge the Practice, Pass the Policy! Campaign has influenced over 75 organizations in the bay area to adopt healthy beverage/wellness policies that meet the Public Health Institute’s 100% healthy beverage standards. BANPAC's experience working with organizations to pass healthy beverage policies shows that it is feasible for many different types of organizations to adopt a healthy beverage policy. An evaluation of BANPAC's 2013 beverage policy work reveals a number of best practices for developing and implementing healthy beverage policies. To share comments and feedback about the BANPAC Healthy Worksite Wellness, please email BANPAC@phd.sccgov.org.
