Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy
Kara Lubischer, University of Missouri Extension State Specialist, Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy. This workshop is a practical approach to creating healthy food environments in small retail stores. Tools, workbooks, signs and stories will compliment the information and resources available for store-owners and stakeholders to make changes. Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy is a comprehensive, community-based program that allows communities to improve access to healthy, affordable foods by working with a small food retailer. Millions of Americans have limited access to a supermarket, which means they must rely on fast-food restaurants, gas stations and corner stores to feed themselves and their families. People who have better access to supermarkets are more likely to eat more fruits and vegetables and less likely to be overweight or obese.
