Over the past two decades, funders have worked with food retailers to help them become better corporate citizens by offering healthy, fresh, and affordable food options. Now, a new kind of food retailer is expanding into rural and low-income urban communities: dollar stores. Mounting evidence shows that dollar stores are triggering the closure of grocery stores, eliminating jobs, and eroding food environments in some of the nation’s most vulnerable communities. Join this webinar to learn more about the expansion of dollar stores and to discuss how funders might start to address the challenges that they present.
