Congressional Recognition of Whittier Healthy Picks Program04-23-2014
Concerned with the health of the community, Whittier Farms owners, Leo and Sandra Anguiano voluntarily joined the effort towards making the healthy choice the easy choice. Whittier Farms now features the Healthy Pick label as an easy way for customers to identify healthy food and beverage items throughout the store. At the April 23rd celebration, Activate Whittier also received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition from the U.S. House of Representatives, which they share with Whittier Residents in Action. Whittier residents have been the driving force behind the initiative, engaged at every level of the program, from conducting store assessments to building relationships with the store owners.
