Youth Nutrition and Wellness

Monday Nov. 17, 6:30 to 8:00pm
 
Boys and Girls Club of Goshen - 306 Crescent Street, Goshen
 
Monday evening's event will focus on youth nutrition and wellness.  
 
We'll highlight the work of the Boys and Girls Club of Goshen, who in 2014 launched a large-scale health and wellness initiative centered on healthy foods and lifestyles.  The initiative has created opportunities to enhance food access, provide exposure to food from seed to preservation, and enhance food education.  Through partnerships with local farmers and different communal food initiatives, the Club has been able to provide locally grown snacks and meals to Club kids with increased frequency.  
 
Club youth and staff will team up to provide a fun and inspiring snapshot of these activities.  There will also be informal time to network and learn about related opportunities to improve food access in our community, particularly for our children.  Light refreshments will be served.
