Healthy Living Fair: Food, fun – and live chickens???

The Goodwill Excel Center was honored on Thursday, March 26, with a visit from Altrusa International-Austin Chapter, who hosted a Healthy Living Fair at the school.

The Fair included presentations of different foods and how to prepare them, nutritional education, hands-on demonstrations, prizes…and two live chickens!  They were brought along to demonstrate food sourcing (fresh eggs) and for the fun.

One of the demonstrations included showing how just how much sugar is in some of the soft drinks by attaching sugar packets to the cup. It was a real eye-opener for a lot of the students.

Altrusa also sent each of the students off with a goody bag—including their very own cookbook! The cookbooks were specially created for The Goodwill Excel Center, and included easy to make recipes with the cost of each recipe next to the dish. Members of Altrusa had prepared a yummy lentil soup and fresh smoothies from the recipe book.

Cluck cluck! Learning healthy living skills has never been so much fun!
