The Allen Chapel Commission on Health and Wellness has planned its third annual health fair for Nov. 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the church, 580 George W. Engram Blvd, Daytona Beach. Admission is free.
The theme is: “Achieve Optimum Health Through Mind, Body, and Soul.” This year, participants can get free flu vaccines and HIV testing in addition to other services offered, including screenings for diabetes, blood pressure, and cholesterol.
Representatives from assisted living facilities, nursing homes, hospice care, healthy foods services, the Volusia County Health Department and others will be available to answer questions.
The Kale Café will provide smoothie demonstrations.
All attendees can get a free car wash provided by the Allen Chapel’s Young Peoples’ Department.
“The public is invited to attend the health and wellness fair and be empowered by this educational and prevention event,” said Marjorie Mole and Brenda Moore, co-chairs.
The church’s Homecoming Committee will kick off its “Top Chef’’ competition at 4 p.m. Nov. 11.
Entry categories include appetizers, main means and desserts. The fee for one entry is $25 and multiple entries are $35.
For registration forms and competitor guidelines, contact email@example.com or the church office Monday through Thursday. The registration deadline is Nov. 5.
Celebrity executive chefs from across Volusia County will judge the entries. Among them is Andra Chisholm, head baker at Daytona State College. She recently competed on the premiere of Food Network’s “Dessert Games” in Santa Rosa, California.
