This 3rd annual, free community event was designed to empower individuals to make healthy eating a doable part of their lives through education, hands-on application, access, and support.

The event will serve as a healthy ‘foodraiser’ for the Kansas Food Bank with a suggested donation of canned tuna, chicken, fruit (in juice), and vegetables (low sodium).
