Healthy Corner Stores Initiative

Our Healthy Corner Store Initiative strives to support local corner stores to offer more healthy and fresh food and drink options in their businesses. Teens from the Lynn Youth Health Alliance spearhead outreach and surveying with store owners. They then support implementation using resources gained from community and government partnerships that encourage more visible placement of healthy options in the store, use of health-focused signage, ability to accept SNAP/EBT and WIC, stocking more fresh items, and more.
