2008 Food Bank Event

On August 14, 2008, the Get Moving Kern Coalition members joined in collaboration efforts with the Department of Public Health and the Community Action Partnership of Kern's Food Bank to serve nutritious recipes using food bank staple items. The event was featured on two early-morning news broadcasts in which some of the recipes were showcased and demonstrated for Kern County viewers.

Food Bank users took home the recipe booklets and received important information about healthy eating, active living, and important community services provided by various local agencies and organizations.

Aside from the taste-testing, the most popular events of the day were the free health screenings administered by Mercy & Memorial Hospitals and the awarding of gift bags, baskets of spices, tomato tortilla soup kits, frozen salmon casseroles, and colorful 5-a-day aprons to the raffle winners!
