KUOW: King County Pushes for Healthy Corner Stores

A great story by Ruby de Luna on KUOW about the Super 24 and the Delridge Healthy Corner Store Initiative

Most people go to a grocery store or supermarket for food. But for many residents in South King County, the convenience store is where they shop. Without a car or adequate bus service going to the grocery store is a challenge. So their options are narrowed down to fast food restaurants or convenience stores. King County health officials are trying to change that. A corner store in West Seattle's Delridge neighborhood could be a model for giving residents healthier food choices.
