UConn Rudd Center for Food Policy and Health

Gifts to the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Health provide general support of the Food Policy and Health Program.

The Rudd Center is devoted to promoting solutions to food insecurity, poor diet, and weight bias through research and policy. Their work documents the impact of local, federal and state food policies designed to improve access to healthy food in child care, schools, and neighborhoods. The Rudd Center raises public awareness of the harm associated with unhealthy food marketing directed at children and teens and provides resources for parents, teachers, health care professionals, and the media to improve diet, and reduce weight stigma and discrimination.

Your support of the Rudd Center will help continue this important work by funding research, outreach, and education.
