Improving the food security of people living in remote Indigenous communities is an identified priority of Australian Governments. As Indigenous Australians suffer a disproportionate burden from diet-related diseases, improved food security will result in health gains.

The community store plays a key role in the provision of food and other services in remote Indigenous communities. This chapter focuses on the potential role of community stores to improve food and nutrition security and subsequent health outcomes. It describes store-based government policy approaches to improving the nutrition and health of Aboriginal people.
