Healthy Food Zone Ordinance

Communities can use this model ordinance to prohibit fast food restaurants and mobile vendors from locating near schools, thereby preventing children from substituting low-nutrient, high-calorie food for the healthier options served at school. Communities may also choose to extend the prohibition to parks, community centers, libraries, and other locations children frequent. Communities that already have fast food available near schools can use this ordinance to prevent additional restaurants from locating near schools.
