The Stater Bros. "Healthy Sections" program will educate and encourage customers to make small changes in their lifestyle that will enhance their health and well-being. The program will be directed by registered dietitian Melissa Hooper. Hooper has specialized in nutrition communication, education and behavior modification for over ten years and past positions include being a media spokesperson, a nutrition consultant and working in a hospital as a fitness/wellness and clinical dietitian.

The program is highlighted once a month in the Stater Bros. ad, with a focused health and wellness message tying into brand products. Other featured components of the program include nutrition seminars, store tours, an informative newsletter, and in-store messages as well as outreach into the community and media appearances.
