Healthy Eating with Show Low Public Library's Cookmobile

This project will provide opportunities in our community to learn how to prepare healthy food for all age groups. By acquiring a "Charlie Cart", the library will hold cooking demos at various different locations such as community health fairs, back to school open houses, farmers markets, community events to include 4th of July celebrations, Show Low Days, and at the library itself as part of our ongoing "Healthy Living" program. This mobile cooking station will allow the library to reach many more people and take this program to where they are. Our county as well as our city have been focusing on a "Healthy Living" initiative to encourage a more healthy lifestyle in order to reduce health issues that stem from obesity, lack of physical activity, smoking, etc. In addition to providing healthy cooking demos, the library will also provide educational classes on the benefits of well-balanced meals and how it can impact your overall well being. These classes will be shared at the library, Head Start, Senior Center, and parent groups throughout the county.
