Philadelphia's Healthy Corner Store Initiative 2010-2012 Report

Description:

In 2010, the Healthy Corner Store Initiative became a part of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health’s Get Healthy Philly initiative, a two-year $15 million cooperative agreement to promote nutrition and increase physical activity funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In partnership with Get Healthy Philly, the initiative expanded the Philadelphia Healthy Corner Store Network from 40 to more than 600 corner stores and introduced trainings, marketing materials and other resources to assist corner stores to stock and promote more healthful foods, providing city residents greater access to healthy foods in their communities.
