The FEAST Local Food Network is a partnership of many organizations, businesses, and individuals committed to growing a sustainable, local and regional food system which encourages innovation.  Friday’s industry-only tradeshow event offered Hy-Vee an opportunity to network with local food producers, in hopes to increase the number of local products you will find on store shelves.  Saturday’s festival showcased Hy-Vee as a destination for health and wellness. 

The Hy-Vee dietitians’ booth offered attendees a chance to learn more about KidsFit – a fun, free, at-home fitness program designed for kids and their families to incorporate exercise, nutrition and general health into their daily lives. img_8090The Roll-the-Dice game was a hit with both children and adults who completed burpees, push-ups, sit-ups and more, all for a chance to take home a KidsFit water-bottle or KIND bar. They also had the chance to test their nutritional knowledge through the Mystery Fruit and Vegetable bag game – where they had to correctly guess Brussels sprouts, pomegranates and mangoes by relying solely on touch. A wide-variety of recipes and were also available for all to take home.
