Healthy Retail Initiative Information

 

SEE-LA's Good Cooking/ Buena Cocina Nutrition Education Program, under the directive of our previous grant funding, initiated a Healthy Retail Project with a corner store in Watts.   The reading material provided within includes our most recent Year end report on the Retail Project's status, a slide presentation of the store's progress and two informational guides to familiarize yourself with Healthy Retail Initiatives and store layout/ design considerations.   This is a quick reference to assist with the project that you will be selecting during your rotation at SEE-LA. 

 

Please at minimum briefly read through this packet prior to your rotation start to familiarize yourself with SEE-LA's current retail project and concepts of retail projects.  

 

Start to think about the Considerations and Assignent put forth on pg 99 and 101.
