CDC Recognizes Innovative Obesity Prevention and Control Initiatives With Weight of the Nation Awards
Date:7/29/2009

ater Philadelphia Urban Affairs Coalition, and the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, is an innovative public-private partnership that increases the number of supermarkets and grocery stores in underserved communities across the state, directly benefiting low- and moderate-income communities. Supermarkets create jobs, serve as retail anchors, and provide access to nutritious food at affordable prices. FFFI is designed to meet the financing needs of supermarket operators who want to serve these communities, where infrastructure costs and credit needs are higher and unmet by conventional financial institutions. The initiative helps new supermarkets get off the ground and existing ones to refurbish and replace old capital to improve efficiency and lower costs.
