Casa Loma Welcomes Farmer’s Market
February 2, 2017 – In an effort to promote healthy eating habits and activities, Casa Loma partnered with the Ravi Patel Foundation to host a Farmer’s Market on campus. The special event was part of a new Healthy Walking and Education Program intended to educate students on positive food choices and exercise. Each student was given $2 in “Casa Loma Cash” to make purchases from a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables to take home.
To help promote exercise and walking, Dignity Health provided each student tennis shoes, sweats and T-shirts. California State University, Bakersfield will also get involved by scheduling student athletes to meet with Casa Loma students to discuss healthy eating and exercise habits.
As part of the event, students kept track of their steps in hopes of collectively reaching 3 million – enough to walk from Bakersfield to Mount Rushmore!
