Building Stronger Communities

America’s beverage companies are committed to promoting healthy, vibrant communities. We provide more than 250,000 jobs, donate $1.5 billion 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 to make many more choices available —from new sparkling waters and reduced-calorie teas to smaller portions of your old favorites.

The beverage industry’s Balance Calories Initiative works to reduce beverage calories an additional 20% per person by 2025.
