In celebration of Earth Day 2015, the Intervale Green Rooftop Urban Farm and celebrity chef Russell Jackson will host the Healthy Living Kick-Off event on April 24th from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. for building residents to promote healthy eating and physical activity. The event will include garden-themed activities for kids, cooking demonstrations from Lehman College Nutrition Education students, smoke-free housing education from the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Crotona Park activity information from the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, healthy living promotion by WHEDco’s Family Support Service staff, and nutrition related activities from WHEDco’s dietitian staff. There will also be a raffle for residents to win a home gardening kit. Special thanks to our donors Pret A Manger and Wichcraft who have donated delicious, healthy food for the event!
