Eat Local & Organic Expo
On April 1st, KC Healthy Kids kicked off the Farmers' Market season by hosting the Eat Local & Organic Expo. Farmers from the Kansas City metro area met with thousands of local community members to share their produce and gardening tips. There was even a "Kids Zone" where KC Healthy Kids' Trauma-Informed Care team promoted healthy living by practicing mindful eating and staying up to date on lifespan and COVID-19 vaccines. Throughout the event, hundreds of CDC fliers on vaccine awareness were passed out, and thoughtful conversations about vaccine hesitancy were had with local community members. Overall, the event was a huge success for KC Healthy Kids, local farmers, and the Kansas City community!
