the project

The Isabahlia Healthy Food Festival is a day dedicated to educating the community about the importance about eating healthy.

The neighborhood is dominated by fast food restaurants and the health of residents is declining. 

Before and during the event, we will be engaging the community in this project and are recruiting all ages to get the job done. Some will be working on the recipes for the day. Others on what food will have for cooking that day.  

 

the steps

Have meeting and promote the event

Identify food trucks

Recruit food educators to participate

Prepare 200 healthy food bags to give away during the event

Finalize entertainers to perform during the event

Produce 200 t-shirts for the community

Provide free smoothies at a smoothie stand

Collect 200 cook books to give away

why we're doing it

The area near Livonia Avenue is filled with fast food restaurants, making it hard for many in the community to lead a healthy lifestyle. We are throwing this event to show the community that healthy food can taste great! In order for the community to thrive, residents need to reverse the health consequences caused by unhealthy food served at nearby eateries.
