why we’re doing it
The area near Livonia Avenue is filled with fast food restaurants, making it hard for many in the community to lead a healthy lifestyle. We are throwing this event to show the community that healthy food can taste great! In order for the community to thrive, residents need to reverse the health consequences caused by unhealthy food served at nearby eateries.
