The Institute of Texan Cultures has teamed up with the San Antonio Food Bank to bring healthy living and nutrition to the masses.
The Healthy Holidays Family Day is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 13 at the Institute of Texan Cultures inside HemisFair Park, 801 E. Cesar E. Chavez Blvd.
Admission is free with donation of a food item from the Food Bank’s “12 Most Wanted” list, which includes peanut butter, cereal, rice, tuna and canned soups.
This is the “second of three opportunities in December for the public to visit the Institute of Texan Cultures” for free, according to www.texancultures.com. Students get in free year-round with an Alamo Colleges ID.
There will be cooking demonstrations, nutrition and wellness education and family activities and crafts.
“I plan to attend this event; I like the idea of being shown how to cook good food and still be on the healthy side,” said Dawn Lewis, a food bank volunteer.
Lewis said she enjoys learning new ways to incorporate healthy living for her and her family.
“This event is a time for families to learn together and have fun while giving back during the holidays,” she said.
