A big event for South Merced! Our Produce on the Go food truck is going to be featured on an Univision Health Week program, and in its honor, a health fair was held at South Merced's Golden Valley Health Center. Participants included: registrants for Covered California, dancing fruit, hula hoop dancers, and (my favorite!) a class of children who handed out samples of tasty and nutritious smoothies.
We took advantage of this opportunity to bring some students out to recruit participants for a study to evaluate the National Cancer Institute's healthy eating text messaging program.
