How can I support my neighborhood healthy corner store?
Here is what you can do if your corner store is part of the Philadelphia Healthy Corner Store Network:
- Look for the healthy corner store decal.
- Buy the healthy foods the store stocks, such as apples, yogurt and brown rice.
- Let your family and friends know about the healthy options.
- Tell the store owner that you appreciate the new options. A store owner is more likely to adopt healthy changes if they believe that there is a strong demand for the products.
