Event Details

Please join us for a Healthy Potluck & Cooking Contest


Your Wellness Committee Members here at Commonwealth invite you to participate in a celebration of Food Day 2012!


We're hosting a healthy potluck and cooking contest. You can bring your favorite healthy specialty, or, if you're shy about your cooking skills, you can skip the contest and just bring something store-bought to participate in the potluck and contest judging.


See the guidelines below for more info!



This event is open to all County employees at the Commonwealth worksite.

Potluck participants must either bring a:

  • Healthy dish (entrée, side dish or dessert). This item may be homemade or store-bought.
