Developed by NNPHI and member institute Health Resources in Action, “Partnering with Food Service to Reduce Sodium: A Toolkit for Public Health Practitioners” provides public health practitioners with a list of strategies, tools, and resources to build new and/or enhance existing partnerships with food service providers to reduce sodium in foods prepared, served, and sold. It is meant to help public health practitioners identify and engage food service providers to reduce the sodium content of food by understanding the context of food service settings as well as the language and drivers of food service providers. Case studies and success stories provide examples of stories from the field, aiming to inspire and generate ideas for implementation. Finally, tools and resources developed for public health and food service professionals are included to impart the experience and learnings of previous sodium reduction efforts.
