Forum enjoys healthy support

Community effort behind the success of the Okanagan Health Forum screening

The Shatford Centre was the venue for a very successful screening of the Forks Over Knives film on March 1. The response from the public was amazing and many people had to be on a waiting list for unused tickets since the event was sold out.

The success of the evening was in no small part due to a large community team dedicated to the health and well-being of Okanagan residents. This team included Jane Shaak of the Shatford Centre and her network of supporters, Nature’s Fare, the Whole Foods Market, The Okanagan, Penticton Western News as well as online media, local eateries, businesses and volunteer organizations which focus on personal health and lifestyle changes as well as environmental health.

Added to that team were the many individual volunteers who performed a multitude of tasks to ensure the show went on and the public health inspection team who spent considerable time providing suggestions to ensure that all food samples served to the public would be safe.

Our deepest thanks go out to each one of you.
