Healthy Food Retail

Healthy food retail is a statewide initiative led by the Creating Healthy Communities program to help make healthy foods affordable and accessible at corner and convenience stores in areas that do not have access to full service grocery stores. Good Food Here stores stock fresh fruits and vegetables and other healthy foods, such as whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, and low-calorie or low-sodium snacks.            


Local health departments across Ohio are working with small retail stores to implement Good Food Here in nearly a dozen cities and counties. Check out the video below to see Good Food Here being implemented in Summit County!
