Spokane Regional Health District, March 1, 2011. This press release describes the progress of a Spokane, Washington, corner store in the Spokane Regional Health District healthy corner store program. Bong’s Grocery and Deli now has a “Healthy Corner Area,” a fresh produce rack with 15 varieties of fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads, and free recipes. Throughout the store, healthier foods are labeled, making it easier for customers to locate healthy options. Health District staff members are helping the store by offering technical support and business training. Funding is provided in part by a grant from the CDC through the Communities Putting Prevention to Work program. See a video clip about the program here.
