How to bring healthier foods to corner stores
Common Dreams - 9/4/2009.
Institute for Agriculture & Trade Policy – Corner stores around the country have used a number of innovative strategies to bring healthier food to their shelves, finds a new paper by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. In many low-income neighborhoods without a grocery store, corner stores are one of the few food options for consumers. In Healthy Food for All: Healthy Corner Store Strategies from Across the United States, IATP explores how corner stores have expanded their selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, utilized social marketing strategies and transformed their in-store facilities to successfully sell healthier food.

But just how hot could things get? The Nature Conservancy has developed a new online tool called the ClimateWizard, which maps past and projected climate data.
Maine Fare to serve up feast of food, thought
Bangor Daily News - 9/4/2009.
By Abigail Curtis – Camden, Maine: Here’s a recipe for success. Take one successful celebration of Maine food and drink, add top local chefs and liberally dollop with discussions about sustainability. Garnish with delicious dinners, decadent desserts and locally produced wines and spirits – even a cocktail made with Moxie – and enjoy.
