WANTED: Healthy Food at Our Corner Stores

You deserve healthy food in your neighborhood!

There’s nothing healthier than fresh fruits and vegetables. But if you live in an urban neighborhood in Cuyahoga County, you might not be able to buy them. More than half of our residents live too far from stores that sell fresh foods. HIP-Cuyahoga wants all residents to have the same chance to healthy, no matter where they live. We’re working with local stores to sell more produce, lean meats, whole grains, and low fat dairy products. When everyone eats healthier, our community gets healthier, too.

Tell us about a store near you.

Nominate a corner store or convenience store in your neighborhood that you would like to see offer healthy food options.
