The nationwide retailer Target joined San Diego County Wednesday in promoting healthy food and living options throughout the nation’s fifth largest county.

Target will promote the county’s “Live Well San Diego” program at its 23 San Diego County locations.

“Target stores are good neighbors to their communities and provide healthy options that everyone can enjoy,” said Supervisor Ron Roberts, chairman of the Board of Supervisors.

“Through this partnership, Target will promote the Live Well San Diego message and encourage healthy living in San Diego,” he said.

Live Well San Diego promotes healthy eating and living to fight a growing wave of chronic diseases and rising healthcare costs.

County officials recognized Target for its commitment to providing San Diego County residents with healthy food options, including the retailer’s Simply Balanced wellness grocery brand.

“Target is proud to partner with the county on Live Well San Diego,” said Target Store Team Leader Matthew D. Johnson. “This partnership offers us the opportunity to support the county as it promotes the health and well-being of its residents.”

Target has also partnered with Feeding America in the fight to end hunger in the United States by donating millions of pounds of food each year to families in need.
