OSF Promotes Wellness at Local Farmers' Markets

10/04/2016 - Streator, Illinois

Staff with OSF HealthCare showcased a variety of produce harvested from three area community gardens at a recent farmers’ market event in Streator.  In addition to having a garden onsite at OSF Center for Health - Streator, volunteers and staff work with other members of the community to maintain gardens at St. Michael's School and Northlawn Jr. High School as well.

In an effort to promote and encourage community wellness, OSF food service professionals offered a number of healthy recipes to accompany the various vegetables on display. Staff have also hosted booths at the farmers’ market in Ottawa to give away bottled water and explain the importance of proper hydration.
