Healthy Meals from the Farm to the Table

Description

The community is invited to join Indiana University Health West Hospital for “Healthy Meals from the Farm to the Table,” which will be presented July 15 through 18 at the Hendricks County 4H Fair, from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, nightly.

Join IU Health West Hospital Garden Cafe chefs Wes and Tony as they take the stage and demonstrate how to cook healthy, grill-friendly meals. Each evening features a different meat choice at the center of the meal and offers free samples for attendees. In addition, each night one lucky raffle winner will receive a healthy, three-course meal—fresh from the grill—for a family of four. Raffle entries from throughout the week will also be entered into a final raffle for a brand new grill, to be given away during the livestock auction on Friday, July 19.

IU Health West Hospital caregivers will also be on hand to educate and engage the public on healthy lifestyle choices. Fairgoers can explore disease prevention through our Ask the Expert booth and Exploration Stations. There will be several fun activities for kids to participate in, as well, including posing for a quick photo at one of our produce cutouts, making a colorful get well card for IU Health West patients or a enjoying an obstacle course.

The IU Health West Hospital area will be located near the shooting sports building, on the south side. Details are as follows:
