Health Expo at PJC Saturday 4/17
Around this time of the year in April, I attend the Women's Expo, mainly to get samples from the Apple Market. But they won't have it again until next year! To make up for it, they will host a health expo instead. And Apple Market will be there. If you have never visited this place downtown (next to the Angus Steakhouse), it's a true Pensacola Gem. At the Expo, they will have local vendors that sell products at their store. I've had the pleasure of tasting Boar's Head hot dogs and deli meats, blueberry rootbeer, Pirate's Booty snacks, Apple Market's apple dumplings and more. We didn't have to buy lunch after that because we were so full.
But the Gulf Coast Health Source Expo will be more than that. The Dietitian in the Kitchen, Diane Hendricks, will have cooking demos. Baptist will have lots of FREE Health Screenings. You could also pledge to lose weight for the Pound For Pound Challenge. How many pounds you pledge (not lose!) will be how many pounds of food donated to the Bay Area Food Bank. A donation of canned food is appreciated.
When: April 17 from 9am-3pm
Where:Pensacola Junior College Lou Ross Center, 1000 College Blvd.
