Food Retail Inventory Tool

The Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods at Case Western Reserve University has developed an assesment tool for food retailers that identifies the availability of healthy options within the store including fresh fruits and vegetables, whole wheat bread, dried beans, and high fiber or low sugar cereals.  The tool also notes if alcohol and tobacco products are sold, if prepared foods are available, and the ratio of food to nonfood aisles in the store.
