Healthy Food Environments Pricing Incentives

Intent of the Intervention

Healthy Food Environments is a practice-tested policy intervention developed by NC Prevention Partners to increase availability, visibility, and affordability of healthy foods and beverages for employees, volunteers, and visitors on hospital campuses.  The intervention includes a pricing policy incentive to encourage purchase of healthier items (through a price decrease) and discourage purchase of less healthier items (through a price increase). 

This is an organizational policy and environmental change intervention that targets individual behavior.
