A number of cities have established programs to encourage food retailers, especially corner stores, to stock healthier products. To build on and strengthen efforts like these, ChangeLab Solutions has developed a Model Licensing Ordinance for Healthy Food Retailers.
The ordinance changes business licensing policies to require all food stores (not including restaurants) to carry a minimum selection of healthy food and meet other basic operating standards. This document describes how the ordinance works and provides tips on how to implement it successfully in your community.
