PRCHN toolkits document best practices and lessons learned from the Center's community-based participatory research to help other organizations, neighborhoods, and practitioners implement community health initiatives and programs.

As part of the REACH grant, the Healthy Food Access team created resource packets for both small food retail businesses such as corner stores and charitable food systems such as food pantries and hot meal sites. Each packet provides general information about COVID-19, recommended practices to maintain a healthy facility/organizations, and best practices for adapting to social distancing guidelines. 
 Healthy Food Retail Implementation Guide cover Healthy Food Retail Tools 
The Healthy Food Retail Project is a grassroots approach to increasing access to healthy foods, especially in neighborhoods where residents primarily rely on convenience or corner stores for basic food needs. Our toolkits offer resources around planning, implementation and sustainability for both planning organizations and store owners, while also giving examples from our own personal experiences during the Good Food Here initiative in Cleveland. 
Promoting Shared Use Toolkit cover Shared Use Tools
Shared use agreements are an affordable way of increasing opportunities for physical activity in low-resource communities where there may not many obvious places to play or exercise. The PRCHN's Shared Use toolkits provide action steps, implementation methods, and suggestions for shared use through a community-focused lens.
