Great weather and 300 adults and kids showed up to make the WeTHRIVE! Growing Healthy Kids & Families event on June 25 a huge success. What a fantastic day we had at the Word Family Life Center in Forest Park!
Councilor Denise Holt welcomes everyone to Forest Park.
WeTHRIVE! community garden coordinators, Kenny Steagall (left) and Edward Denson walked attendees through the Word Of Deliverance garden, with a stop at the compost bin.
Kids created pictures of what a healthy plate looks like.
Fresh fruit kebabs tasted as good as they looked.
Veggie characters brought healthy food to life.
Everyone went home with a tomato plant to start growing healthy meals for their families.
Congratulations to the churches that brought out the most members:
First Place ($750): Word of Deliverance
Second Place ($500): St. Mark AME Zion Church
Third Place ($250): New Prospect Baptist Church
