August 3 from 10:00am - 1:00pm
Care-A-Van comes to the North Union Farmers Market at Shaker Square.
Care-A-Van events are family-friendly, and combine elements of health fairs with engaging cultural experiences to make well-living fun while building stronger, more vibrant neighborhoods.
The event will feature health screenings, a book giveaway, nutrition education, hula hooping, and other wellness-oriented activities.
Care-A-Van, a program of the nonprofit, 501c3 organization Food Strong, transforms communities through bringing arts, music, health screenings, nutrition education, and other resources together to create vibrant wellness experiences at local farmers markets and other food-centric community hubs. This initiative seeks to respond to the needs of the community by convening resources focused on a holistic concept of health into the communities where people live, work, pray and play.
Through Care-A-Van programming, we will offer health screenings, a book giveaway, nutrition education, hula hooping, and other wellness-oriented activities. We will give participants promotional giveaways to incentivize participation in this innovative, collaborative event.
