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. Hooper holds both a Master's Degree in Nutrition, with an emphasis on childhood obesity, and a Bachelor's Degree in Nutritional Sciences from Oklahoma State University. She was recently awarded the 2006-07 "Emerging Dietetic Leader" Award from the Kansas City District Dietetic Association.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer." We are also very happy to have Melissa on board to help us implement this new 'Healthy Selections' program."

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.
