Improving access to healthy foods

Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy logo.

Millions of Americans have limited access to a supermarket, which means they must rely on fast food restaurants and small food retailers, such as gas stations and corner stores, to feed themselves and their families.

Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy is a comprehensive, community-based program that enables communities to improve access to healthy foods by working with a small food retailer. Through toolkits, resources and webinars, Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy will guide any community group through a unique approach to increasing access to healthy foods that involves engaging small food retailers and community members, thus addressing supply and demand at the same time.
