Pico Union Project’s Special Vida Sana Health and Wellness Fair.
PUP is thrilled to host a special Vida Sana on Sunday, June 2, 2019 from 10:30am - 12:30pm at the Pico Union Project. This program is made possible in part through a grant from the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health as part of Wellbeing Community Engagement.
Pico Union Project is passionate about bridging communities and putting the principles of “love thy neighbor” into action. Vida Sana is one of our flagship programs that we use to connect our community to valuable services and resources. Furthermore, Vida Sana provides an opportunity for community residents, volunteers, and service providers to engage in meaningful interactions and cultural experiences.
This special Vida Sana event will be similar our bi-monthly event, but on a grander scale. The Vida Sana Health and Wellness Fair is free to the public. Adults and children will enjoy fresh produce from the Farmer’s Market, healthy cooking demonstrations, art projects, games, music, food, haircuts, workshops, and resources from a wide network of social and health service organizations.
It takes a village: Looking for volunteers and community partners to support our mission and help us grow Vida Sana into a robust program. Please get involved in the following ways:
