Haggen, Top Food to offer free prenatal vitamins


NEW YORK A Pacific Northwest grocery chain plans to offer prenatal vitamins and fluoride supplements to expectant mothers for free.

Starting Wednesday, any consumer at a Haggen or Top Food store with a subscription can obtain the vitamins, which normally can cost almost $20 per month.

Midwestern big-box chain Meijer began offering a similar program for prenatal vitamins on Sunday, in addition to a program offering free antibiotics that began in October 2006.

Based in Bellingham, Wash., Haggen operates 33 stores throughout Washington and Oregon under the Top Food & Drug, Haggen Food & Pharmacy and Larry’s Market banners.
