The Manchester Healthy Corner Stores Program is bringing healthy eating choices and nutritional information to local grocery stores throughout the Queen City. Watch our video.

cornerstoresBeginning in April, four center city corner stores began highlighting healthier food options for shoppers.  Over the course of four weeks, each store held a kickoff event to showcase their increased fruit and vegetable selection, offer tastings of easily prepared recipes, and guide neighborhood shoppers to healthier food items on shelves throughout the store.  The stores, located in the Center City neighborhood, are part of a pilot project directed by the Manchester Health Department.  NHPR recently attended one of the store openings and aired this report

The project is supported by the HNH Foundation and the national Convergence Partnership.
