South Stockton Neighborhood Celebrates Healthy Corner Store Conversion Saturday

South Stockton Neighborhood Celebrates Healthy Corner Store Conversion Saturday

Community organizations and agencies including the Network for a Healthy California (Network), and Community Partnership for Families of San Joaquin/Dorothy L. Jones Family Resource Center have continued to work together with the neighborhood corner store, M & M Market, to improve access and availability to healthier food and drink choices for the surrounding community. Corner stores are critical in the battle against obesity, particularly among low-income Californians who are at greater risk.

The community is encouraged to come and see what is being done and can be done at neighborhood markets to improve food and drink options that support healthier lifestyles. The celebration will be held on Saturday, April 20, from 11am to noon, at the M & M Market, 1804 E 8th Street, Stockton, CA 95206.
