Did you know that 3.4 million Texans live in areas where it is difficult to buy fresh and healthy food? Some of those areas are right here in Austin.
This means that for many, their local corner store, which often carries only highly processed or unhealthy food, may be their only option. Texas's obesity epidemic affects both children and adults, and multiple solutions are needed to address this complex issue. One important way to improve the health of everyone is to bring healthy, fresh food to communities. Or, as we like to say, #MoreAtMyStore!
YOU can help make the healthy choice the easy choice. Show your local leaders why you support #MoreAtMyStore.
- Add your name to join the #MoreAtMyStore movement.
- Post your photo about healthy food to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #MoreAtMyStore.
Together we can help all Austinites find healthier food closer to home!
