Two Fort Worth grocery stores are hosting public events to celebrate becoming Blue Zones Project Approved™. Everyone is invited to join the fun with Blue Zones® inspired food samples, balloon artists, giveaways and other family-centered activities.
On Friday, July 17th, Carnival Food Store at 102 NW 28th Street, will host a celebration from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., featuring music and prizes from the LaGrande 107.5 street team. Fiesta Mart, 2700 Eighth Ave. will host its celebration from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m., with music and prizes with Kannon and the 103.7 KVIL-FM street team.
Blue Zones Project® is a community-led well-being improvement initiative aimed at making healthier choices easier for people who live, work and play in Fort Worth. The two stores are the first in the Fiesta and Carnival chain to achieve Blue Zones Project Approved status. Both reached the designation by completing the Blue Zones Project Grocery Store Pledge and adopting or supporting a selection of best practices from a menu of 35 options.
The public is invited to visit the stores and look for Fiesta and Carnival’s new Blue Zones Project checkout lanes where shoppers can find healthier impulse items such as fruit and water. Both stores have designated Blue Zones Project parking spaces further away from the entrance to encourage walking and are providing healthy recipes and the Blue Zones Food List around the stores. Fiesta and Carnival also offer offering salads as a healthier grab-and-go meal option and feature produce displays at the front of the store.
