On Wednesday, City officials announced a new healthy eating initiative that helps combat obesity. Shop Healthy NYC asks bodegas to prioritize the display of healthy food and produce while limiting the availability of junk food. This program is launching in the Bronx, and food suppliers Jetro and Krasdale will provide storeowners with incentives to stock healthy options. 100 community groups and 150 shops in Fordham and West Farms, two high-need areas of the Bronx, are already on board, and will make an impact on approximately 136,000 New Yorkers. With other healthy eating projects underway, including the NYC Health Department’s Health Bucks and Shop Healthy NYC’s Adopt-a-Shop program, there are a lot of great ways to get involved with eating healthy and improving food options in your community.
