WASHINGTON -- The National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS), Cumberland Farms and other companies are partnering with the Partnership for a Healthier America to help in its goal to help increase access to healthy food options.
For NACS, the association representing the nation’s more than 154,000 c-stores, the new commitment with the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) makes it the first retail-association partner.
The partnership will allow NACS to leverage the PHA’s resources and expertise to help c-stores provide more visibility for healthier choices inside their stores.
"The commitment furthers the goals of NACS and our members to make a positive impact in the communities we serve, whether through charitable giving programs or helping to equip our members to truly make the healthy choice the convenient choice," said NACS President and CEO Henry Armour.
At the PHA Summit in Washington, D.C., NACS was joined by Westborough, Mass.-based Cumberland Farms in announcing commitments at the annual event, joining eight other NACS retail member companies that are already committed to expanding healthier options in their stores.
