NJ is one step closer to expanding healthy food options!

Last month, I sent an update about the Healthy Small Food Retailer Act being considered again this session. Good news-the Assembly passed the bill on March 26! This is the first step in securing resources to be used for expanding healthy food options in corner stores in communities that lack traditional supermarkets and-too often-healthy, fresh food options.
We will continue to work with the Senate as the spring progresses, and I will continue to keep you updated. Please keep your eyes peeled for "You're the Cure" updates and to learn how you can continue to make your voice heard on this important issue.
Although we still have a lot of work to do, we are excited about the possibilities for ensuring all families in the Garden State have access to healthy foods.
