Successful Health & Taste Fair

On Saturday, Nov. 19, we held our first revitalized Holy Grill Health Fair - and it was a big success!  Nearly 100 people braved the rain and chill to gather in the Cadillac Street Gym to learn more about health and good nutrition.  At tables around the gym, participants were able to:
  • eat samples of healthy, affordable recipes
  • receive flu shots and health screenings
  • sign up for courses and programs
  • plant vegetables in container gardens
  • receive information about local events and services
This kind of event is only possible through partnership - 30 organizations were involved in making this day a success, from presenters to contributors and underwriters (see full list below).

Another Health Fair will be held in the spring.  Want to be involved?  We'd love to have more volunteers and organizations take part!  Contact us - call the office (225-267-5600) for more information.
