Event Details

The Food and Fitness Fair will be hosted during Food Day week. Food Day is a nationwide celebration originally launched by Center of Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) promoting healthy, affordable, and sustainably produced food.

Main goals of our local event include educating the community about the benefits of being physically active, having a balanced diet and decreasing the intake of sugary beverages. Our event will take place right next to our Farmers Market where on a weekly basis we offer our community a consistent supply of fresh, locally sourced produce.

Main events at the fair include a community run/ walk, a youth led smoothie competition, a build your own herb garden workshop, fitness classes, children’s activities, cooking demonstrations, health screenings by Daughters of Charity, and launch of the Sankofa Mobile Market.
