The Madera County Public Health Department in collaboration with Bridge Store, a Madera grocery store, is coordinating a free Fruit and Veggie Fest for Madera County residents, 2-5 p.m., May 20.
The event will feature various educational and family-friendly activities, including cooking demonstrations, samples of infused water, physical activity, and store tours.
Each May, Fruit and Veggie Fest events are celebrated throughout California to encourage consumers to improve their health by filling their shopping cart with an array of colorful fruits and vegetables each time they shop.
Our efforts to inform, educate, and empower our community are critical in the battle against the obesity epidemic, particularly among low‐income families. Studies have shown that retail promotions such as the
Fruit and Veggie Fest have a positive impact on how consumers spend their food dollars and CalFresh benefits that can ultimately improve their life.
This event has reached hundreds of Madera County residents in the past, providing them with community resources, health tips, and nutritious recipes to nourish their families. The Madera County Public Health Department would like to invite the community to participate in this event.
Bridge Store is located at 748 N. “D” Street, Madera.
