More than 23 million Americans do not have access to a full-service grocery store within a mile of their home and often depend on neighborhood stores for their daily food needs. Healthy corner stores can help make fresh fruits and vegetables and other foods such as whole grains and low-fat dairy products available in more communities.
Neighborhood stores identified as Healthy HotSpots are making healthy living easier in your community by offering a variety of healthy foods and beverages.
Healthy HotSpot works together with the following community organizations to expand the ability of local corner stores to sell healthy foods: City of Blue Island, The Ministers Conference of South Cook County, Respond Now and TCA Health.
Check out these stores on the Healthy HotSpot map that have recently become Healthy HotSpots.
Partners supporting to build healthy corner stores are the Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago Children, The Center for Faith & Community Health Transformation, and the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association.
