Alliance for a Healthier Generation and America’s Beverage Companies Announce Landmark CGI Commitment to Reduce Beverage Calories Consumed Across the Nation

Alliance for a Healthier Generation and America’s Beverage Companies Announce Landmark CGI Commitment to Reduce Beverage Calories Consumed Across the Nation | Grants | Scoop.it

It would be nice to see the Restaurant Association be a part of this commitment.
