  • Description:
    Assessment of the food retail environment is part of a comprehensive approach to undertaking healthier food retail initiatives. This document provides public health practitioners with an overview of how to develop an assessment of their state’s or community’s food retail environment through focusing, planning, and implementing the assessment and communicating the findings.

    Successful healthier food retail efforts depend upon reliable information on the food retail environment. Before implementing strategies to improve healthier food retail in your state or community, it is necessary to assess the food retail environment to understand the extent and nature of the problem, including disparities to accessing affordable nutritious foods. Assessments can be tailored to address specific questions and can include topics such as identifying the number of stores in a given location, the types of food items sold in stores, or the types of marketing approaches that stores employ. The information gained from assessments can be used to prioritize or plan healthier food retail strategies with partners or inform decision-makers where interventions may be warranted.
