Studies have shown that healthy food retail improves the economic health and well-being of communities, and can help to revitalize struggling business districts by supplying local jobs; creating foot traffic; and attracting complementary stores and services like banks, pharmacies, and restaurants. Healthy food retail can also increase or stabilize home values in nearby neighborhoods, generate local tax revenues, and promote additional spending in the local economy. This webinar provides the latest research on the economic impact of healthy food retail and explores how new healthy food retail provides jobs and other positive economic impacts to surrounding communities.
