Numerous local organizations and non-profits, will be educating and inspiring people about the many advantages of local food and a maintaining healthy and fit lifestyle. Food is central to daily life and family culture, and a means for empowerment, community connection and cultural celebration. With goals to reduce waste at the Festival, we are encouraging non-profits to have engaging exhibits that minimize paper handouts.

The Family Fun Zone is filled with exciting interactive games and activities for the whole family! From getting physical to being in touch with our animals of the land and sea, there is something for everyone! Family Fun Zone is presented by: The Trustees, KAS Consulting, and The Rose F Kennedy Greenway.
