COPPELL, Texas -- Minyard Food Stores, Inc. here has joined forces with Boston-based Oldways, a non-profit food issues think tank, and its Latino Nutrition Coalition (LNC) to distribute "Camino Magico," a bilingual guide to healthy shopping, in more than 25 of Minyard's Carnival Supermarkets in north Texas.
