Half the U.S. population visits a convenience store every day, so the food in stores shouldn’t just be healthier, it should also be more affordable. PHA works with partners like Kum & Go to transform the marketplace by ensuring that convenience stores across the nation are fully stocked with healthier options.
Through its partnership with PHA, Kum & Go will ensure that its 400 stores across 11 states are offering and promoting healthier options at affordable prices. This will include improving beverages offered so that 30% of beverage fountains and 25% of beverage coolers are healthier options as well as ensuring there are default options within its prepared foods that include whole grains and lean proteins. Looking beyond its stores, Kum & Go will expand its food rescue program and provide discounts for healthier options to employees.
152,792 c-stores in the U.S. serve approximately 160 million Americans every day, which means that on average, half the U.S. population visits a convenience store every single day
