Healthy Corner Stores
Healthy corner stores are convenience stores, including gas stations, that offer more than the typical amount and variety of healthier food items, including produce. This partnership began with efforts by the non-profit, Go Austin, Vamos Austin (GAVA), and led to six corner stores in the 78744 and 78745 zip codes of South and Southeast Austin to increase their capacity to offer healthy food items. Healthy foods include both fresh and canned fruits and vegetables, and shelf goods that follow specific nutrition standards. Currently this program is being adapted. More updates coming soon!
