CalFresh & EFNEP Family Fitness Night
On Wednesday, January 15, CalFresh Healthy Living and the Expanded Food & Nutrition Education Program provided nutrition education and physical activity at San Mateo Park Elementary School’s first annual Family Fitness Night. UCCE Educators staffed four engaging stations at this free educational event. At one station, families participated in a mindful eating activity and tasted cucumber citrus infused water. At another, they tasted seasonal produce and were given the opportunity to vote whether they Loved It, Like It, or Not Today. At the gardening station, they participated in seed identification. Adults and children alike were most active at the Coordinated Approached to Child Health (CATCH) station where entire families participated in games designed to engage them in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. Over 40 people attended this fun community building evening at San Mateo Park Elementary School!!
