SuperShelf NIH Research

Evaluation Sites

These sites have been selected to transform into SuperShelf as part

of the NIH research evaluation grant.  

 

Pilot Sites

These four food shelves helped to test the first full iteration of SuperShelf through the University of Minnesota Extension. These four food shelves were flexible partners, working with SuperShelf to test, edit, and implement a more solidified SuperShelf transformation process. This pilot was funded by BECR and UMN Extension Family Development/SNAP-Ed.

 

Early Champion Sites

These food shelves helped to create and test the earliest versions of SuperShelf. They dedicated intense time and resources without any significant financial incentives, and SuperShelf is successful because of their previous and continued partnership.

 

The Instigator

Early on, before we had an idea of what SuperShelf could become, Valley Outreach food shelf in Stillwater was paving the way for this work. They partnered with HealthPartners to complete a healthy food shelf transformation, and this initial transformation serves as the foundation for SuperShelf today.
