 AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to enacting the heal-
   thy food service guidelines for New York act of 2021
 
   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.  This  act shall be known and may be cited as the "healthy
 food service guidelines for New York act of 2021".
   § 2. Legislative findings and intent. The Senate and Assembly  of  the
 State of New York finds as follows:
   1.  A healthy diet, consistent with the most recent Dietary Guidelines
 for Americans (DGA), can reduce the risk of many chronic diseases,  such
 as  obesity,  cardiovascular  disease,  diabetes, osteoporosis, and some
 cancers. Poor nutrition,  on  the  other  hand,  can  negatively  affect
 growth,  development,  and  health status. The New York State Prevention
 Agenda 2019-2024 established a goal of increasing access to healthy  and
 affordable foods and beverages to support the overarching goal of reduc-
 ing obesity and the risk of chronic disease.
   2.  The  typical diet of Americans is not consistent with the DGA, and
 unhealthy eating behaviors are too common among New Yorkers. It is espe-
 cially challenging for people of low  socioeconomic  status,  people  of
 color,  and  people with disabilities to access healthy food.  According
 to the Prevention Agenda Toward the  Healthiest  State  Progress  Report
 2018:
   (a)  37.4% of adults in NYS consume fruit less than once per day.  The
 prevalence is highest for adults who are Black or  Hispanic  (39.8%  and
 39.3%,  respectively),  live in households that earn less than $25,000 a
 year (40.4% and 43.7%), have less than a high school education  (42.1%),
 or are living with disability (41.7%).
   (b)  22.4% of adults in NYS consume vegetables less than once per day.
 The prevalence is highest for adults who are non-Hispanic Black (29.3%),
