Healthy HotSpot: Corner Stores Pilot Program

Description:

As part of the CPPW initiative, over 20 small, local corner stores within 8 communities across suburban Cook County  were recruited into the pilot program. With support from community-based organizations and municipalities, this program is designed to help each corner store owner offer a variety of new healthy food products.  By offering foods such as whole grains, low-fat dairy products, low-fat proteins like fish or beans, and fruits and vegetables, these stores are making it easier for local residents to access healthy food items.  - See more at: http://www.cookcountypublichealth.org/healthy-initiatives/healthy-hotspot#sthash.9n4eZmlX.dpuf
