Families attending the event can take advantage of free health and dental screenings that will be provided by Clinica Sierra Vista and Healthy Smiles. A local nutritionist will conduct nutrition workshops and cooking demonstrations to help provide families with ideas for healthy, family-friendly meals.

"We are very pleased to partner with Anthem Blue Cross to host this event; the needs in our community are very great at this time and their support to bring together all these organizations will make a difference to the families who take advantage of the screenings and services," said Connie Provencio, Lowell Neighborhood Resource Center.

Among the additional participants at the fair are: Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Reach out and Read Fresno County, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Central Valley Children Services Network, 4More Entertainment, California Health Collaborative, Girl Scouts Golden Valley Council, Exotic Animal Foundation and many more.
