Healthy Corner Store Initiative Philadelphia

Description:

Get Healthy Philly has teamed up with The Food Trust to work with corner stores in Philadelphia to improve access to healthy foods.  

 

Every corner store in the Philadelphia Healthy Corner Store Network has introduced at least four new healthy options, such as fresh produce and low-fat dairy and whole grain products.

Healthy corner stores also help customers make healthy choices with colorful signs that provide easy-to-use nutrition information.
