Partnerships for Healthier Corner Stores

Partnerships for Healthier Corner Stores

A webinar on how alcohol and tobacco control advocates can collaborate with healthy eating advocates

Public health advocates specializing in nutrition, tobacco control and alcohol control have each developed strategies to increase access to healthy foods in stores and decrease access to less healthy foods and substances - but generally these efforts have been uncoordinated. This webinar presents strategies for leveraging the expertise in these fields to develop a comprehensive approach to creating healthy corner stores, with examples of communities that are successfully breaking down these silos. 
 
This webinar is part of the New Carrots on the Block webinar series, presented in partnership with Network for a Healthy California.

Retailer compliance:
If a store is accepting WIC and SNAP benefits, they can be assumed to be in compliance with program standards. 
 
In California, the state department of public health provides a "List of Authorized Vendors" for WIC or search for a local store. 
 
The U.S.D.A. maintains a national listing of SNAP stores here.
