We would like to give a big SHOUT OUT to
Duplin County Health Educator Rigoberto Castellanos for being a
POWER partner in the Healthy Corner Store work. Rigo has been instrumental in reaching out to stores with his pride and passion for public health in his county. Rigo grew up in Duplin County and he has fond memories of shopping at one of the three Hispanic Stores that we have begun to work with.
"I remember when me and mom went shopping for groceries mom would always stop at El Mariachi Gordo first because of knowing that fresh quality vegetables for soups and fresh fruit for him to take to school were available." -Rigo
Travis and Rigo over the past few months have been partnering with three Hispanic Stores to promote and make available healthy options with
he big goal of having them reach the full designation.
Thanks to Rigobertos determination and relationships El Mariachi Gordo in Warsaw now has reached full designation for the NC Healthy Food Retail Designation program.
