The Healthy Stores for Healthy Communities campaign just released the results of their statewide surveys. We’ve included their factsheet for Alameda County below as it contains some useful data on our communities here.
More than 7,000 stores were surveyed in all 58 California counties, which included convenience, supermarket, liquor, tobacco, small market, discount, drug and big-box stores. Approximately 700 individuals participated in gathering information statewide, including public health representatives, community volunteers, and young people.
The Healthy Stores for a Healthy Community campaign is a statewide collaboration between tobacco use prevention, nutrition and alcohol prevention partners.
