CMC-NorthEast and Aramark sponsored a Food Fair at Kannapolis Intermediate School to help students make healthy choices. The food fair featured stations that helped students choose wisely about meals and snacks. All students were given a t-shirt and a bag of healthy snacks. They were able to sample such treats as fruit smoothies, sweet potato hummus, granola and whole-grain chips. Exercise sessions showed them the benefits of keeping active, and an ultra-violet light pointed out how many germs still hang around after most kids wash their hands. Students even crawled through a "colon" and learned how long they would have to walk to burn off a Big Mac. More than 30 volunteers from Carolinas Medical Center and Aramark guided students through the event.

 

We thank CMC-NorthEast for being a partner in helping Kannapolis City Schools promote wellness for our students and staff.
