Mecklenburg County Public Health works with neighborhood corner stores to provide healthier food choices for the community they serve.
The North Carolina Healthy Food Retail Designation (NCHFRD) program recognizes small food stores that meet product criteria established by the N.C. Healthy Food Retail Collaborative. Any small food store in North Carolina that meets the designation criteria is eligible to receive a "Healthy Food Sold Here" certificate of designation and a door decal.
Every small food store is unique; stores located in different communities or neighborhoods may require different approaches. Criteria for a store to receive the N.C. Healthy Food Retail Designation includes a minimum amount of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, proteins, dairy (or dairy substitutes), and water.
N.C. Healthy Food Retail Toolkit is available to help small food stores with increasing their healthy options and help them apply for the NC Healthy Food Retail Designation.
