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.
