Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy: Starter Packet

Starter kit

Kara K. Lubischer
Community Development Specialist

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.

Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy toolkits and resources will guide any community through a unique approach to increasing access to healthy foods that addresses both supply and demand by engaging small food retailers and community members. This starter packet contains all the items you will need to begin your strategy for partnering with your community's small food retailers and promoting healthy eating through nutrition education opportunities and practices.
