This map illustrates the availability, quality and price of various healthy food products available in 13 neighborhood grocery stores. The goal of this map is to create awareness about local healthy foods options in order to start conversations about personal nutrition and form coalitions with local vendors and community organizations around how availability of healthy food affects our health.
The information was collected using a nationally tested measurement tool by local community members, middle school students, and university students through in-store surveys. Unfortunately, all the stores surveyed scored in the 'least healthy’ category. This poster was made from data collected November 11 &13, 2008 from willing food vendors using the Nutrition Environments Measures Survey (NEM-S) survey.
