Healthy Eating is a SNAP!

San Mateo County FairHealthy Eating is a SNAP! We are proud to partner with the San Mateo County Fair to show how easy it can be to eat healthy.  Check out the video and then head on over to the fair website to see what’s happening at the fair:

Never been to a fair?  Here’s what you can expect: Pig races (need we say more?), petting zoo, homegrown exhibits and demos, live music– there is something for everyone!
