Shop Healthy NYC

Adopt a BodegaShop Healthy NYC works with communities – including residents, food retailers, and food suppliers and distributors – to increase access to healthy foods. Shop Healthy NYC’s main focus is on those neighborhoods with high rates of obesity and limited access to nutritious foods.

Shop Healthy NYC has developed a guide for community residents and organizations interested in working with local food retailers to increase healthy offerings, like fresh fruits and vegetables, 100% whole wheat bread and low-salt canned goods. This guide provides tips for working with retailers to make healthful changes and for increasing community demand for these healthy offerings.
