Sodium Reduction in Communities Program

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has awarded the Marion County Public Health Department (MCPHD) funding to participate in the national Sodium Reduction in Communities Program (SRCP). This five-year program supports MCPHD to partner with government worksites, distributive meal programs providing meals to seniors and children, and their food service management companies to elevate the nutritional profile of food served in their institutions by reducing sodium and ensuring closer alignment with the USDA 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. This will be achieved by collaborating with food service vendors to increase availability of lower sodium items served and by modifying the environment to support healthier food choices.
