In communities lacking supermarkets or other full-service food retail, families depend on corner stores for the majority of their food purchases. The choices at these stores are often limited to processed foods and very little fresh produce. The Healthy Corner Store initiatives is creating a network of healthy corner stores in cities and states across the country and improving healthy food access in corner stores. While the models and size can vary, the overarching goal remains the same: working with corner store operators and partners to source, price, and promote healthier items in their stores.

This webinar explores strategies, best practices, and lessons learned from launching and implementing healthy corner store networks and will highlight existing efforts in New Jersey; San Jose, California; and Cleveland, Ohio.
