Healthy Food Taste Test Event February 8
(Woodland, CA) – The Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency’s Nutrition Education Obesity Prevention program invites the community to stop by Arteaga’s Starlight Market, located at 940 Sacramento Avenue in West Sacramento, on Wednesday, February 8 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. for free healthy recipe taste tests, cookbook giveaways and a chance to spin the prize wheel.
This event is in celebration of Arteaga’s rating as a quality store, based upon findings from the Nutrition Education Obesity Prevention program’s healthy retail initiative assessment – Communities of Excellence. The assessment is part of a statewide effort to increase access to healthy foods, including fruits and vegetables, in neighborhoods with limited access to larger grocery stores. In 2016, Arteaga’s Starlight Market received the quality store rating because of the variety and quality of healthy foods and fresh produce items offered, and also because of improvements to the store’s environment that support patrons’ efforts to make healthy choices while shopping on a budget. Arteaga’s Starlight Market has been an active partner in the Nutrition Education Obesity Prevention’s healthy retail initiative since 2013.
