First Annual Wellness Fair a Success

Marbrook Elementary School hosted its first Annual Wellness Fair on Wednesday, November 8th.  The purpose of the event was to not only connect families to community agencies that are instrumental in promoting health and wellness, but also to highlight our community garden harvest through a live cooking demonstration and dinner.  During the event,  participants were able to connect with over 20 vendors and receive information and various resources related to  nutrition, mental health and community outreach opportunities.   With over 150 people from the Marbrook community in attendance, participants revealed that they enjoyed being able to “network and learn new things” and “come together to celebrate the school’s garden through the community dinner.”  The Wellness event would not have been possible without the support of Red Clay Nutrition, EdTV, Job Corps, Nemours Health and Prevention Service, and Healthy Kids Delaware.   Marbrook’s Wellness Committee anticipates on hosting a bigger and even better Wellness Fair next year.  With the continued support and partnership of stakeholders from surrounding community, the committee will be able to achieve their collective goal of sharing and promoting healthy living with as many people as possible.
