Help Healthy Small Food Retailers in Your Neighborhood


Share On Social!


In most communities, convenience stores are a common part of the retail landscape – and in many areas, both urban and rural, these stores are the only nearby places to buy food. Can you think of one in your area? What if they served more than just chips, candy, and soda?

“Health on a Shelf”,  ChangeLab Solutions’ guide to healthy small food retailer certification programs, is an extensive toolkit that takes folks through the process of creating and sustaining a healthy small food retailer program.

By establishing a healthy small food retailer program, government agencies and community-based organizations can support and give incentives to food retailers (including corner stores, bodegas, and rural markets) that are willing to sell healthy foods. Programs offer a range of materials and services to stores, from refrigeration equipment to technical assistance to vouchers for free fruits and vegetables.
