Ask Major Supermarkets for Healthier Options at Checkout
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200.
It’s no accident that nearly all supermarkets in America sell candy and soda in their checkout lanes.
Placing junk food near the cash register is a marketing strategy that supermarkets use to boost sales. Not only do supermarkets benefit from the sale of junk food at checkout, but they’ve found a way to make even more money by “renting” out space in their checkout aisles to food companies that pay to have their products there.
Supermarkets should support shoppers’ health, not undermine it. Join us in asking Walmart, Kroger, and other major supermarkets to do right by their customers and remove junk food from checkout.

I am writing to ask you to stop marketing candy, soda, and other unhealthy options at checkout. As one of the nation’s largest food retailers, your company should be a leader in responsible business practices.
In a country where many people struggle to eat well and maintain a healthy weight, the last thing we need is our grocery stores pushing junk food on us at checkout.
Please let me know if you will take action to improve the options in your store’s checkout lanes.
