Healthy Retail Program

We are working to increase access to fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods, using our CX3 Store Survey and Scorecard as a guide. With our partners, we will provide resources and technical assistance to at least 3 new corner stores located in SNAP-Ed eligible neighborhoods who participate in our voluntary Healthy Retail Program. 

Healthy Retail Program Partners:

City Fabrick, Healthy Active Long Beach, Long Beach Fresh

Pledged Stores:

El Pacifico Meat Market, 1473 Atlantic Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90813 

Communities of Excellence 

The Communities of Excellence in Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity Prevention (CX3) project takes a look at select low-income neighborhoods in the City of Long Beach to measure the nutrition environment and identify opportunities for improvement.  

 Understanding the Problem 

  •  More than half of all adults are overweight or obese 
  •  Likelihood of being overweight is influenced by the environment in which you live 
  •  In California there are four times as many unhealthy food outlets as healthy outlets 
  •  Low-income communities tend to have the poorest food choices
