Rural Grocery Initiative

Rural Grocery Survey


Over the years, the Rural Grocery Initiative has collected information about rural grocery stores through conversations, workshops, meetings, and surveys.

In 2008, when the Rural Grocery Initiative was first learning about rural grocery challenges, a survey was sent to rural grocers and customers. The survey results helped inform the Rural Grocery Toolkit. See the 2008 survey and results here.

In 2021, an updated survey was sent to rural grocers across Kansas. Data analysis of this survey is currently underway. See information about the 2021 survey here.
