Next Week is National Health Center Week

(from our friends at the USDA)

National Health Center Week is August 8-14, 2010, and many communities during the month of August are sponsoring health fairs and health screenings. These events target low-income individuals and families without access to adequate health services.

State and community SNAP outreach staff can sign up to volunteer at these events and offer a table with information on SNAP and nutrition materials as there is a direct connection between our diet and our health. Most events have no fee. You can find out about local events at http://www.healthcenterweek.org/join.html.  Clients can also use this site to look for events in their area that they may want to attend.

If you do not see an event in your state today, try again in a few days. Events are posted daily.
