This Halloween, while households hand out candy, more than 1.5 million North Carolinians cannot access the healthy foods necessary to live a healthy life. You can help.
In July, the NC General Assembly appropriated $250,000 for the creation of a statewideHealthy Corner Store Initiative. While this is a great step towards the elimination of food deserts in NC, more work needs to be done.
On January 11, the NC General Assembly will begin session and NCAH will seek $1 million in recurring funds to support the initiative. With your support we can help to ensure all North Carolinians have access to healthy, affordable foods.
