Healthy Corner Stores Guide

healthy corner stores guide cover screen shot

Provides information, strategies, and resources for organizations interested in making healthy foods and beverages available in corner stores within their communities.

Many families rely heavily on corner stores, also referred to convenience stores or bodegas, for food purchases because they live in communities without supermarkets, farmers markets, or stores where fresh produce and healthy items are commonly sold nearby. Healthy corner stores have the power to positively impact the health of community members.

The Guide is available in both English and Spanish.
