HAYWARD -- Students at Tennyson High School are inviting the community to a free health and wellness fair Friday from 2 to 5 p.m. on campus.
The health fair is part of the Alameda County Office of Education's nutrition education program, Project EAT (Educate. Act. Thrive), and sponsored by Healthcorps.
The event will include tastings of fresh fruit and vegetable from the school garden, and nutritious snacks such as solar oven nachos and bike-powered smoothies. There will be tours of the Tennyson High farm, and entertainment will be provided by the Tennyson High School's jazz band, Polynesian dancers and student break dancing groups.
Project EAT teaches students about healthy food practices at Tennyson's one-acre garden, where students tend the plants and donate the fresh produce to food pantries, use it in cooking lessons and share it with their families. Students apply their knowledge to creatively teach peers about nutrition and wellness through social media campaigns and Twitter parties, and to educate the community.
Tennyson High School is located at 27035 Whitman St., Hayward. Parking is available on campus.
