Building Stronger Communities

America’s beverage companies are committed to
promoting healthy, vibrant communities. We provide
nearly 240,000 jobs, donate more than $765 million to
charitable causes, and are continuously working to
improve the health of children and families through
education, outreach and other strategies.

Working With Mayors

We partnered with the U.S. Conference of Mayors to support cities with innovative, cost-effective program strategies to prevent and reduce childhood obesity. This collaboration includes programs that educate children and families on the importance of balancing calories and staying active.

Supporting Balance Across the Country

Our commitment to reduce beverage calories in
the American diet starts locally. We are working
in communities across the country—from eastern
Los Angeles to the Mississippi Delta—to learn what
works when it comes to creating more balanced
communities. We’re working with local organizations
to help educate and encourage consumers to think
about balance when choosing a beverage. And
we’re working hard make many more choices available
—from new sparkling waters and reduced-calorie
teas to smaller portions of your old favorites.
