Lessons Learned from the Coalitions Linking Action and Science for Prevention (CLASP) Initiative For Nutrition and Food Environment Policy

Coalitions Linking Action and Science for Prevention (CLASP) was an initiative of the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer that aimed to reduce the risk of cancer and chronic disease through the implementation of evidence-based program and policy interventions. Of a total of 12 CLASP projects, four focused on creating healthier food environments and increasing healthy eating through the identification of 260 policy changes.

These policy changes primarily occurred within municipalities and communities, workplaces, and schools and child care settings. This report describes the lessons learned (i.e. “Pathways to Policy”) from these projects and can inform food environment policy work in jurisdictions across Canada.
