Whether it’s an election campaign or a longer-term issue campaign, dedicated campaign staff and volunteers put in long hours and sometimes practically live at campaign headquarters. It’s easy to fall into the fast food trap, leading to poor nutrition, low energy, sick staff and resultant absenteeism, lower productivity and avoidable mistakes. This training will provide a model for establishing healthy campaign environments, including the rationale, sample materials, checklists and templates for how candidates, campaign managers and staff/volunteers can easily and affordably create an environment which elevates an ethic of self-care by making it easy to stock what’s needed to prepare quick and easy healthy meals and snacks.
This training is open to everyone.
