New Toolkit: Healthy Food Retail Implementation
The PRCHN REACH team has released Healthy Food Retail Implementation: A Community Guide to Improve Healthy Food Access in Neighborhood Corner Stores. This toolkit combines strategies, experiences, and lessons learned while providing available resources and helpful tools when working with owners of corner stores to increase their selection of healthy foods and engaging residents in the process. A healthy food retail initiative offers a community-based, grassroots approach to increasing access to healthy food in the existing retail environment and promoting the importance of healthy eating habits in neighborhoods where residents suffer from health disparities. This toolkit serves as a framework for healthy corner store projects and can be modified to meet each community’s unique identity and needs. The PRCHN Healthy Food Retail Implementation Guide  has been created to share lessons learned from the Cleveland Good Food Here initiative and the unique resident engaged approach that sustains this effort. The new resource guide complements the Good Food Here Store Owner Guide, released in 2016.
