Baltimore Healthy Stroes


The Baltimore Healthy Stores (BHS) project seeks to promote healthier food choices through store promotions and on-site education. Formative research found that store owners resisted sourcing healthier food because of a lack of consumer demand. Consumers reported they could not purchase healthier foods due to unavailability and poor quality. BHS sought to bridge the gap between supply and demand.
