With “Good Food Here” Celebration on May 12

Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County will kickoff the summer with a Good Food Here - Healthy Corner Store celebration at the Stop-N-Save Food Inc. located at 36 W. Third Street in Dayton. The kickoff is scheduled for May 12th from 11 am to 1 pm. This free event will highlight Stop-N-Save Food’s commitment to offering healthier food choices to residents in the community and begin a series of five monthly events at various locations.

The celebration will feature a live remote with WROU-FM 92.1, a Smoothie Bike, food demonstrations, taste testing of fresh produce recipes, along with free giveaways. Please stop by and join the fun!

A “healthy corner store” is a corner store or convenience store offering healthier foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, low-sodium canned goods, low-fat dairy options, and whole grains. These healthier food choices provide benefits to lower-income communities and neighborhoods with limited access to public and private transportation that often rely on corner stores as their main grocer.

The Good Food Here - Healthy Corner Store effort is an initiative of Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County. It is funded by the Communities Preventing Chronic Disease grant.
