“Eat Well Live Well” Expo for Senior Citizens
October 2, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Ferguson Road Initiative is partnering with the Senior SNAP Access Task Force of the Senior Hunger Action Team. The purpose of the team is to work together to increase senior participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) so that low-income seniors can get help purchasing healthier foods. The Task Force is piloting a collaborative outreach and application assistance campaign in the 75228 zip code. This Support for Seniors Campaign was launched at an AARP Town Hall meeting on June 27 at White Rock Hills Library, where hundreds of promotional flyers were distributed.
The Task Force is organizing a free, open to the public food and health expo called Eat Well Live Well that will take place on Friday, October 2, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at Harry Stone Recreation Center. It will feature nutrition education, cooking demonstrations, health screenings, and SNAP application assistance – all geared towards seniors in 75228.
