The USHFC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nongovernmental organization dedicated to fighting diet-related disease by realigning the food industry’s incentives with consumers’ health interests.
The mission of the USHFC is to increase production and consumption of healthful and sustainable food for all communities. Through partnerships and innovative solutions, we aim to transform our food system and eliminate the epidemics of diet-related disease.
The USHFC envisions an America free from the diet-related diseases that cut short or debilitate too many precious lives before they have reached their full potential. This will be an America where children learn a life-long appreciation for nutritious and sustainable food from their families and communities, and where healthful food and beverages are both good for consumers and good for business.
By building partnerships with communities, businesses, educational institutions, other nonprofits and thought leaders, we intend to serve all individuals and communities by promoting innovative solutions to America’s epidemic of diet-related diseases.
Informed by the challenges of America’s increased incidences of diet-related diseases, the USHFC pursues its mission with both excellence and compassion.
