Join Mayor Bill Bogaard and Pasadena officials along with other
City representatives on Friday, October 24, 2014 to celebrate Food Day
Pasadena! The local observation is a part of Food Day, a nationwide celebration
and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.
The City of Pasadena Public Health Department will be hosting Food
Day Pasadena with a Fall Festival! This
free outdoor event is open to all ages and will feature a welcome address by
Mayor Bogaard, live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, local healthy eating
and food assistance resources, activities for children, raffle prizes, and
more! The fun begins at noon until 4:00 p.m. at the Pasadena Public Health
Department, 1845 North Fair Oaks Avenue.
The community is also
invited to participate in a public forum to discuss how food disparities are
impacting the health of residents in the Northwest Pasadena area, introduce the
results of a neighborhood assessment called Communities
of Excellence in Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity Prevention (CXᶟ),
and strategize on how we can create healthier neighborhoods to improve food
access and the quality of life. The forum will begin at 1:30 p.m. on the second
floor of the Pasadena Public Health Department, Room 2407.

The Nutrition and Physical Activity Program aims to reduce the prevalence of obesity and other chronic diseases by providing nutrition education and obesity prevention services in Pasadena. Through our various campaigns we encourage the public to increase consumption of healthy foods and beverages, decrease consumption of less healthy foods and beverages, and increase levels of physical activity.
Our goal is to make the healthy choice an easy choice for all residents of Pasadena.
