Healthier Choices Just Around the Corner!


The Healthy Small Food Retailer Act has made it through the Legislature in late June and is now on Governor Christie's desk! This bill would provide state support for programs that assist small corner stores and bodegas with offering healthy food for sale, such as the NJ Healthy Corner Store Initiative. "You're the Cure" volunteers throughout NJ have been advocating for this legislation for over a year and our hard work is finally paying off!

Governor Christie will need to act on the bill by the fall. The American Heart Association and our partner organizations urge the Governor to sign this legislation that promotes healthy food access and economic development in communities that are underserved by supermarkets.
