“Food Day and Healthfest bring resources and information about nutritious eating, physical fitness, and well-being to help people improve their quality of life,” said Environmental Programs Coordinator Rosanne Albright. “The mix of food, fun, and live entertainment that families will experience is one way we can help move toward a healthier and more resilient future.”

Events run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The first 150 people to arrive will receive a FREE bag of seasonal produce ($10 value). Families can help muralist Stephanie Guillermina Castro paint a mural that celebrates South Phoenix and its food culture. Chris Lenza, National Executive Chef of the Cafe Bon Appetit Wellness Team, will be on the main stage doing a live cooking demonstration.

Everyone is invited to join in the traditional Apple Crunch – hear what it sounds like when everyone bites into their own fresh, crisp apple at the same time! There will also be food trucks on-site, along with live music and performances.

While there is no onsite parking at either venue, there will be a FREE shuttle to take visitors to and from their cars at the following parking locations:

  • ​El Prado Park
  • Ignacio Conchos Elementary​
  • John R. Davis Elementary.

Shuttles will run every 15-20 minutes.
