The White Center Community Development Association is leading the effort to organize the first White Center Business District Summer Shop Fresh Event in the White Center Business District on Saturday, August 20th from 5-7pm.


The purpose of this event is to raise the awareness of fresh, healthy food available in our six produce markets and three Halal stores in White Center’s business district.  “White Center isn’t necessarily a “food desert”. Exploring Summer Shop Fresh and by foot in White Center’s walkable, pedestrian-friendly business district, will allow visitors to not only purchase healthy fruits and vegetables, but also learn about unique culinary traditions and meet neighbors at the same time!” said Aileen Balahadia, Executive Director of the White Center Community Development Association.  The White Center CDA is a catalyst for a healthy community and new prosperity in White Center- so it’s a better place to visit, shop, and live.


When White Center shoppers enter the designated stores, they will check in at each market’s Healthy Food table where they will participate in an activity relating to healthy food and fitness. Afterward, they will be gifted a $3.00 coupon. For every $3 dollars of own money spent, White Center residents can use this coupon to buy additional food. This coupon is only valid for purchase on August 20 and at this particular store of visit. Therefore, the more stores the residents visit, the more coupons they will be gifted and use. In addition, there will be a chef demonstration of cooking healthy food at one of the markets. There are nine food stores participating in the event: Lee’s Produce, West Seattle Halal, White Center Market, White Center Halal, White Center International Deli and Halal Store, Phnom Khiev, Samway Market, Hung Long Asian Market and New Golden Village Market. 


The White Center CDA thanks our co-sponsor, the Community Putting Prevention to Work’s Healthy Food Here Initiative, a national initiative to prevent chronic disease and promote health through policy, systems and environment changes, and the King County Food and Fitness Initiative, who believes that shopping, cooking and eating healthy food is easy and fun activity that the whole family can enjoy.


For additional information, please contact Nhan Nguyen, Neighborhood Revitalization Program Manager at (206) 694-1082 or at nhan@wccda.org.


On a related note, the White Center CDA also would like to promote other exciting events happening on August 20th, 2011 organized by our community partners.
