Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy is a comprehensive, community-based program that allows communities to improve access to healthy, affordable foods by working with a small food retailer. Millions of Americans have limited access to a supermarket, which means they must rely on fast-food restaurants, gas stations and corner stores to feed themselves and their families. People who have better access to supermarkets are more likely to eat more fruits and vegetables and less likely to be overweight or obese.

Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy toolkits and resources will guide any community through a unique approach to increasing access to healthy foods that addresses both supply and demand by engaging small food retailers and community members.

The program evaluation toolkit describes various evaluation tools appropriate for gauging the success of a healthy small food retailer program. It addition, it provides four forms that can help you discover the effect of your efforts.

To learn more about the program, check out the Stock Healthy, Shop Healthy community and retailer toolkits.
