DC Central Kitchen: Healthy Corner Store Program


The D.C. Healthy Corner Store Program worked to reduce food insecurity and improve D.C. residents' health by analyzing ways that small retailers could improve customer access to fresh produce, low-fat snacks, nutritious beverages, and other healthy foods in neighborhoods without adequate supermarkets and other sources of affordable healthy food.

The program also aimed to support corner grocery stores by expanding their capacity to sell healthy foods and increasing their profits from healthy foods.
