On April 1st, an expansion of Minneapolis’ staple food ordinance went into effect, requiring food stores to carry a minimum quantity of certain foods, including healthy foods. This ordinance has to potential to increase healthy food access in many communities, but some smaller store owners might need some extra help.
Appetite for Change, a non-profit that uses food to create social change, is working with the Minneapolis Department of Health and Family Support on its effort to get more produce into the city’s corner stores.
Leaders from both Appetite for Change and the Minneapolis Department of Health and Family Support spoke with a local news station about exactly how they hope to make corner stores in the city places that carry healthy, delicious food.
