Junior League of Santa Barbara Hosting Spring Into Health Family Day

Saturday's free festivities will include games, cooking classes and exercise demos

The Junior League of Santa Barbara is hosting a Spring Into Health Family Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, March 19 at Monroe Elementary School, 431 Flora Vista Drive in Santa Barbara.

This is a “Kids in the Kitchen” event during which all grade school children and families are invited to participate in a fun-filled day of healthy living in the Santa Barbara community. Events will include crafts, games, cooking classes, live entertainment, exercise demos, face painting, a free kids’ lunch from Silvergreens, resources for the entire family and prizes galore.

Free round-trip transportation will be provided from McKinley Elementary School, 350 Loma Alta Drive.

Each attendee will receive a Spring Into Health goodie bag along with a participation passport that can be redeemed for a special surprise at the end of the day. Volunteers who wish to help with the event and high school students who would like to earn community service can call Kimberly Coley at 805.689.7086 or the Junior League at 805.963.2704.

“In line with our current focus on providing leadership in improving youth literacy, this Spring Into Health/Kids in the Kitchen event will encourage better nutrition and also provide a practical application of literacy skills — reading and understanding a food package label and following a simple recipe,” Junior League President Kristi Horton said.

The Junior League of Santa Barbara is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
