After participating in the OAV Summit on May 4, the 7th grade students at Drake will host a nutrition fair to help promote healthy living in the hopes of helping individuals live healthier longer lives so they can impact the community. The theme of the nutrition fair is “Get your health intact and make an impact.”
Drake students have worked throughout the program on the issue of nutrition and its role in the Bronzeville neighborhood in which they live. Known as a “food desert”, there is a shortage of available fresh foods throughout Bronzeville, and the negative impact of poor nutrition is felt throughout the community.
The First Annual Nutrition Fair will be held at Drake Elementary School, 2722 S. King Drive, Chicago IL 60616.
