For central Ohioans who have a grocery store or supermarket around the corner, finding healthy foods like fruits and vegetables isn’t usually a concern. Yet many Columbus residents lack nearby grocers or transportation to these food retailers, making it difficult to find fresh produce and other healthy foods.
Fresh Foods Here (FFH) is a community initiative that’s working to make the healthy choice the easy choice for low-income residents in our community by improving the availability of nutritious, affordable options. The program takes a multi-dimensional approach to improving access in central Ohio by:
- partnering with neighborhood corner stores to increase their inventory of healthy food and improve their store operations; and
- engaging with community partners and residents through nutritional and cooking education activities to encourage healthy food choices.
