Healthy Options, Healthy Choices day at the NC Legislature
Posted on 06.07.2016, Tuesday

Join us for “Healthy Options, Healthy Choices” day at the NC General Assembly on June 9th! Be a part of a fun-filled day and learn more about affordable, healthy food options for the children and families of North Carolina.

Join in on the fun! RSVP online.

MomsRising parents, kids, and lawmakers will be gathering at the legislature for an educational, fun, and fast-paced event. Out on the lawn of the Halifax Mall, there will be several activities that get kids moving and learning about (and eating!) healthy foods, including:

  • A Pre-K 1K walk/run for kids and legislators
  • A “storyboard walk” that will get kids both walking and reading
  • An arts & crafts activity on building a healthy eating lifestyle
  • A lawmaker-led story time
  • A “healthy choices food cart” which will be stocked with healthy food options, offered for free

Lawmakers have an important role in making sure that kids across the state have access to healthy, affordable foods, time to run and play during the school day, and are educated about how a healthy diet and regular activity contribute to their overall health and the health of our communities.

Here are all the details:

  • When: June 9, 2016 from 10am-11am
  • Where: NC General Assembly, Halifax Mall (The grassy area behind the legislative building), 16 W Jones St, Raleigh, NC 27601
  • Who: Parents, children, policy makers, and others who support healthy food choices, healthy children, and farmers

If you have any questions, please contact Felicia at MomsRising.

Thanks for being a champion for young children!
