September is Hunger Action Month

Food shouldn’t be an impossible choice. Yet, for many people in our community, access to healthy food options isn’t a choice between different dishes. It's a choice between being able to afford healthy food options and other crucial needs—like medicine, electricity, or childcare.

The Healthy Corner Stores program increases community access to convenient, fresh, and affordable, fruit and vegetables across San Antonio.

Launched in 2019, the program has grown to include over 30 Member Stores in neighborhoods that have low access to fresh produce with the goals of improving community health and supporting local economic growth. Member Stores have provided 100,000+ pounds of produce and over 50 types of fruit and vegetables to the community!
