The Healthful Corner Shop project, much better identified as Grab Healthful, is a collaboration with shop owners to stock and industry healthier foods in neighborhood corner retailers. WCHD gives shop owners and managers guidance on what foods to buy, advertising and marketing and coaching supplies, and bins to show the healthier foods the shop owners/managers are then accountable for the buy of the solutions. The initial pilot project started with 3 neighborhood corner retailers participating in 2022: 7-Eleven – 1770 Sutro St. Reno, NV 89512, Reno Meals &amp Discount Liquor – 1123 E 6th St. Reno, NV 89512, and Vassar Marketplace – 1870 Vassar St. Reno, NV 89502.

WCHD is optimistic to continue expanding the plan and get far more retailers involved.
