Corner stores are convenient places to buy food in Baltimore. And healthy food choices are possible.
We are working with store owners and with communities to make healthy food available in corner stores. Over three years, we are working with eighteen corner stores to stock and sell fruits, vegetables, whole grain foods, low-fat milk and dairy, and healthy snacks and drinks. We are also working with Youth Neighborhood Food Advocates and area grocery stores to promote healthy food options.
Baltimarket Healthy Stores is possible through funding from the Maryland Community Health Resources Commission and the AARP Foundation.
