Get Fit for the Health of it Festival March 24

Although National Nutrition Month is coming to an end, Eagle Dining Services (EDS) isn’t losing fuel. To wrap up the month of fitness, EDS will host the “Get Fit for the Health of it Festival” on Friday, March 24, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of Dining Commons, 97 Georgia Ave.

Throughout National Nutrition Month, EDS has showcased a variety of methods the University community can use to make healthy, impactful dining choices and alternatives. From staying hydrated through food choices to alternative protein sources, diners have experienced the benefits of the Fuel Forward program and education.

The festival will feature information on healthy eating habits, short exercise class demos, food samplings of workout recovery recipes and more. The first 100 attendees will receive a free t-shirt, and there will be prize giveaways during the event.

“The point of this event is to show and demonstrate resources both on and off campus that will encourage students, as well as help them maintain the healthy lifestyle they need whether they are at school or after they leave,” said Brittany Parham, nutritional coordinator for EDS.

The event is free and open to the public.
