The City of Minneapolis Health Department has released a request for proposals (RFP) for a Healthier Beverage Initiative. The Health Department will select an organization serving the Latino community to conduct public awareness activities and pursue practice changes in a variety of settings (e.g. events, institutions) to increase availability and promotion of healthy beverages. The goals of the initiative are to provide healthier beverage options, increase the intake of healthier beverage choices and, ultimately, to improve health. The full text of the RFP can be found here. For more information and resources, visit the Health Department's Grants and RFPs page.
