On Tuesday morning, November 16, 2010 at Ama's Variety Store located at 957 Main Street in Pawtucket, RI, owner Ama Amponsah explains about the display rack of peanuts, sunflower seeds and other healthy snacks as an healthy option to candy bars. Numerous other items like Rhode Island grown fresh fruits and vegetables, salads, fruit cups, yogurt 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 Dept. of Health. To kick-off the store's new line of healthy 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.
