Picture of fruits and vegetables

Many areas in Denver lack access to healthy food options, including full service grocery stores. Families depend on corner stores and other small-scale stores to purchase foods, and those choices are often limited to packaged food and very little fresh produce.

The Denver Healthy Corner Store Initiative (HCSI) helps corner store owners expand and promote their healthy and fresh food selection. By working with storeowners, food distributors, and community residents, the initiative works to make it easier for families to find healthy food options. Choosing more fruits, vegetables and whole grains reduces the risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases.

23 stores currently participate in the HCSI, with plans to enroll 50 stores by the end of 2017.
