How does it work?

To identify suggested areas of improvement, MSU Extension
educators will support store owners in assessing the store
environment for established healthy store practices. These
practices include promoting and labeling nutritious items,
displaying nutrition information and food safety practices.
Following the assessment process, store owners will have
the opportunity to choose five of the identified areas that
they wish to improve. MSU Extension educators will
provide ongoing support and connect store owners with
appropriate educational tools and resources so they can
implement modifications in their chosen areas.
After a three-month period MSU Extension educators will
follow up with store owners to discuss their progress.
