The Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce’s Health & Wellness Committee is launching a new program in January called Hub City Healthy Eats. The program is a way for people to easily identify healthy items on menus at restaurants in town. Local dietitians evaluate individual dishes and give the avocado of approval to those that meet the criteria outlined in the program. Look for the Healthy Eats avocado indicator the next time you dine in Aberdeen. // —Josie Clemens
