Convenience stores may lack healthy, affordable food and drink options. Many people are looking for healthy options when they’re on the go. When residents can easily access healthy foods, they are more likely to choose healthy options.
The Mass in Motion Healthy Market Program works with local convenience store owners to make healthy, affordable food and drink options available to customers. By offering and promoting healthy options, the Healthy Market Program makes it easier for residents in these neighborhoods to eat better.
