Yes We Have No Bananas


In the Modesto HEAL Zone, worksite wellness continues to flourish at the Stanislaus County Health Services Agency.

This year, they kicked off their annual Wellness Challenge with something new—a farmers market. The Wellness Challenge is a friendly competition between departments to encourage healthy lifestyle behaviors. Employees earn points by doing things like drinking water, eating healthy breakfasts and lunches, exercising, and eating more fruits and vegetables.

The new farmers market sold 1,154 pounds of fruits and vegetables in just its first month—including every last banana.
