Family Fun Health Fairs
"Excellent event. Families loved it and it was so positive and organized." – Marc Welty, Principal at Kaseberg Elementary
The Family Fun Health Fairs were a wonderful opportunity for family members to directly participate in their child’s nutrition education while having fun together. The events were a successful collaboration between UC CalFresh and the many people who impact a child’s eating behaviors, including family members, food service staff, school staff and teachers and local community partners.
