Promoting Healthy Retail
Promoting healthy retail in Latino communities
Healthy food retail programs can increase the availability of fruits and vegetables in communities that lack access to supermarkets.
With the option to tap into federal, state, and local funding streams, Latino communities have plenty of opportunities to add healthy food retail to a toolbox of policies for tackling diet-related diseases. Some programs have also successfully integrated tobacco control measures, helping to improve the overall health of the community.
In this webinar, experts discuss proven strategies and how community advocates are advancing this public health agenda on the ground in Latino communities.
Guest speakers include Ana Ramos from The Food Trust, who works with small storeowners in Camden, NJ, and Kymberly Lacrosse of the United Way of Santa Cruz, who empowers Hispanic youth to take charge of their food environments.
