Creating Supportive Workplace Food Environments: Café and Vending Pilot

Food Environment To support healthy eating, workplaces are becoming more interested in offering and selling healthier food and beverages to employees. In addition, workplaces are also interested in reducing the amount of tempting food that is offered or sold, in order to make it easier for employees to make healthier choices. 
This pilot report provides an overview of a process that was used to improve access to healthier food and beverages in a workplace. The lessons learned can serve as a guide for workplaces that are looking to offer healthier choices and reduce the amount of less healthy food that is offered and sold in the workplace.
