Social Media Coordinator
The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) is the premier national nonprofit transforming the food supply in pursuit of health equity. Founded in 2010 in coordination with Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Initiative, PHA seeks partnerships that have the greatest impact on reducing health disparities and develops evidence-based, scalable approaches that drive equity-focused, systemic changes across entire sectors. Over ten years, we have partnered with more than 400 corporations, convenience store chains, hospitals, early childhood education centers, food banks, and SNAP-Ed implementing agencies, among others, in pursuit of our vision that all children grow up healthy and free from obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic conditions.
In response to COVID-19, PHA launched two new signature programs, one to increase long-term demand for produce and another to increase demand for healthy meals prepared at home. These programs complement PHA’s longstanding efforts to increase the supply of affordable, healthy foods available for sale in the marketplace and are poised to benefit from the findings from robust, third-party evaluation in 2022.
