On Tuesday morning, November 16, 2010 at Ama's Variety Store located at 957 Main Street in Pawtucket, RI, owner Ama Amponsah reaches for a container of fat-free yogurt, as a new display featuring Rhode Island grown fruit and vegetables like apples, as well as a box of mangoes. Other items like salads, fruit cups, and fruit juice are the beginning to implementing healthy changes, as part of the Healthy Corner Store Initiative sponsored by the Environmental Justice League of RI, Farm Fresh RI, Kids First and the RI Department of Health. To kick-off the store's new line of products, youth from the Environmental Justice League's Community Environmental College and other community volunteers will "make over" the store on Saturday, November 20th from 12pm to 3pm.
