Access to healthy food options in retail settings is an important component of healthy food access and a healthy food system. The term Healthy Food Retail encompasses many types of settings where people purchase food, including full-service groceries, ethnic markets, convenience stores, farmers markets, vending machines, hospitals, workplaces, restaurants, community centers, and public events.

OPHI has collaborated with multiple partners on a range of healthy food retail initiatives. For more information, contact Policy Manager Emily Henke.
