The Sweetened Beverage Tax Community Advisory Board was established by the City Council (Ordinance 125324) to advise and make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on programs and activities supported by the tax revenue.
Services funded by the proceeds of the beverage tax are intended to expand access to healthy and affordable food, close the food security gap, promote healthy nutrition choices, reduce disparities in social, developmental, and education readiness and learning for children, assist high school graduates to enter college, and expand services for the birth-to-five population and their families.

(Regular Board meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Meeting locations fluctuate, so check this webpage for details. All Board meetings are open to the public.)
