Posted on 08 Sep 2017 for representative Cathleen Galgiani

What: Modesto Farm to Fork Event When: Saturday, September 9th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. *Press should arrive 11 AM* Where: First Methodist Church Hall, 850 Sixteenth Street, Modesto (Next to the Downtown Certified Farmers Market) Who: Senator Cathleen Galgiani will be the host and MC with event partners including local farmers, health organizations, food programs, educators, and non-profits. Everyone is invited to this free event. Attendees will have a chance to learn about obesity prevention, healthy choice eating, and budgeting for meals with food program benefits. The intent of Farm to Fork is to raise awareness and educate our citizens of the contribution local agriculture can have in our daily life, particularly if we chose to eat fresh and healthy produce grown locally. We also want to celebrate this incredible resource and variety of nutritious food, and the people who make it possible. Too many are unaware of the harm being done to their families with unhealthy diets, or how easy it is to access some of the finest, freshest, healthiest and safest fruits, vegetables, poultry, dairy and meats products available anywhere in the world, and they are grown right here in our community.
