Eat Healthy

Healthy Retail – Join the Movement!

        

           

People who live and work in the City of Shasta Lake are working together to promote shopping locally with a focus on increasing access to healthier choices within our community.

Shop Healthy Shasta Lake works with markets to:

  • Provide more fruit, vegetable and healthy snacks choices.
  • Reduce tobacco, alcohol and junk food advertisements.
  • Increase healthy food options at/near check-outs.
  • Provide healthy food tastings, recipes and cookbooks.
  • Promote efforts to offer healthy choices in local media.

Stores play an important role in our community. They shape the economic vitality, quality and safety of our neighborhoods. They also influence the health of the families and young people who shop in them. Shop Healthy Shasta Lake and Healthy Stores for a Healthy Community efforts focus on the link between the store environment and community health.

Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention publishes story on the Shop Healthy Shasta Lake collaborative efforts to provide more healthy choices.
