    Stock Healthy Shop Healthy - SHSH (Session 1 of 10)

    When:  Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018, noon to 2 p.m.

    Where:  
    Grocery Store - Inner City Oil
    Kansas City MO

    Description:

    Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy is a comprehensive, community-based program that allows communities to improve access to healthy, affordable foods by working with a small food retailer. Millions of Americans have limited access to a supermarket, which means they must rely on fast-food restaurants, gas stations and corner stores to feed themselves and their families. People who have better access to supermarkets are more likely to eat more fruits and vegetables and less likely to be overweight or obese. Through toolkits, resources and webinars, Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy will guide any community through a unique approach to increasing access to healthy foods that involves engaging small food retailers and community members, and thus addresses supply and demand at the same time

    Cost:

    $0.00
