Family Fun Zone
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.
