Do Right! Healthy Corner Store Network

Combating Food Deserts

INCREASING ACCESS TO HEALTHIER FOOD OPTIONS IN UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES.

Our vision is to increase availability and sales of healthy, affordable foods in existing small-scale corner stores in underserved communities. We work directly with corner store owners to provide support and resources in order for the owners to introduce healthier options in their stores. Replicating Philadelphia’s successful model, we currently partner with 11 stores in participating neighborhoods including Avondale, West End, Walnut Hills, Clifton, Northside, Roselawn, Evanston, and South Cumminsville.

 

The goals of the initiative are as follows:

  1. Increase access to healthy foods
  2. Increase sale of healthy food items
  3. Decrease alcohol and tobacco advertisement
  4. Provide nutrition education to community residents
  5. Increase the confidence and skills of the owners
