Food Retailers

The Food Retailers Task Force worked to increase the availability of local foods at retail food establishments such as independent grocery stores, country stores, and convenient stores. The task force worked with the Vermont Department of Health on the Healthy Retailers project. Strategies included developing marketing materials for stores and educating consumers about the benefits of buying local.
