How you can get healthier food options at convenience stores in the Chippewa Valley

Chippewa Valley (WQOW) – If you have ever found yourself craving something to eat driving down the road, the convenience store is sometimes your only option – leaving you without healthy options many times.

Now, nine stores in the Chippewa Valley are working with members of the Healthy Food Marketing Collaborative to provide healthy food options.

Most participating stores are located in areas of low access to healthy and affordable food, according to Eau Claire Healthy Communities.

The stores are implementing strategies like eye-catching displays, coolers and messaging signs to help draw attention to the healthy options.

Weather Outlook: Finally! More sunshine this weekend

The fog and clouds lifted late Friday morning, and that meant the sun finally shined brightly for much of the day. While it doesn’t have a lot of power this time of year given we’re only a week away from the winter solstice, it still helped warm us into the mid 30s.
