Healthy Army Communities is an Army-wide effort to improve the health and wellness of the total Army Community. Healthy Army Communities focuses on leveraging existing best practices as well as developing strategies to help encourage healthy lifestyles, while also reshaping Army communities to support healthier places at and around Army Installations to live, learn, eat, work, play, shop and sleep. Healthy Army Communities aims to increase Readiness, Resiliency, Retention, and Recruitment by developing a total Army Culture of Health.

Unhealthy food and poor eating negatively Impact the military performance.
A fit and healthy fighting force is the foundation of a strong national defense. In the United States, poor health, obesity, and lack of physical fitness pose a growing threat to the military's four "R's": Readiness, Retention, Recruitment, and Resiliency. A few observations underscore the scale of the challenge.
