In collaboration with CDC, the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) and Health Resources in Action (HRiA) released a resource titled, Partnering with Food Service to Reduce Sodium: A Toolkit for Public Health Practitioners. The toolkit highlights a list of strategies, case studies, tools, and resources for building new and/or enhancing existing partnerships between public health and food service providers to reduce sodium in foods prepared, served, and sold. The information helps explain the context of food service settings as well as the language and drivers of food service providers to support effective partnerships. The case studies and success stories provide examples of stories from the field, aiming to inspire and generate ideas for implementation. The tools and resources impart the experience and learnings of previous sodium reduction efforts. This electronic toolkit can be accessed for free at www.nnphi.org/sodium. For questions or comments, please contact Kelly Hughes at khughes@nnphi.org.
