Louisville – Eating right is a healthy goal for everyone. The key to eating healthy is knowing what to eat and also how to fix healthy food. It is a goal that is easier to achieve that you think.

Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton (D-5) is encouraging residents of the area to come out to the West Louisville Food Summit on Sunday, September 23rd to learn more about the healthy choices everyone can make in their life when it comes to food.

“For the last few years, Metro Louisville has made a major effort to encourage more stores in our inner city to offer healthy fruits and vegetables,” says Hamilton. “The Food Summit is an opportunity to learn how to eat and prepare foods that will improve your life in the long run.”

The West Louisville Food Summit will offer various workshops in several areas including gardening, composting, lead safe gardening, Fresh Stop,

canning and demonstrations on how to prepare foods.

The event will be held in Chickasaw Park. While food is the center piece of the event, there will also be demonstrations of the benefit of exercise and entertainment throughout the day.

“This is planned as a day to learn how you can be healthy and at the same time it will be a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon at one of Metro Louisville’s favorite parks,” says Hamilton.
