The REACH Project’s Healthy Beverage & Sodium Reduction Initiative works with organizations across the city of Boston to promote adoption of voluntary policies and practices that will increase access to healthy beverages and low sodium foods.

Organizations are encouraged to establish workplace policies around healthier food and beverage options by adopting procurement standards, implementing sales and retail strategies that promote healthy items, and enhancing access to tap water.  The work of the Healthy Beverage & Sodium Reduction Initiative spans the following sectors:
  • Community-based organizations
  • Community Health Centers
  • Early child care programs
  • Elder meal service providers
  • Faith-based organizations
  • Homeless Service Providers
  • Hospitals
  • Supermarkets
  • Youth Organizations
