Children participating in the Food Explorers Wellness Fair.

The Food Explorers Wellness Fair
For After-Schools and Community-Based Organizations

The Food Explorers Wellness Fair is a one-day activity-packed fair for children to explore elements of taste, food groups, and food sourcing while learning how to make healthy food choices.

At the fair, children become “Food Explorers” as they journey through five stations and learn about each topic through hands-on and physical activities. Once children arrive at the fifth and final station, children will receive a Food Explorers kit to encourage children to continue learning at home.

We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity as there are a limited number of fairs for the school year. If you are interested in bringing the 1-day fair to your after-school program, Sign up today and secure your children a chance to participate in becoming a Food Explorer with Spoons Across America.
