Salud y Sabor Celebrates Mexico: Bridges Between Past and Present

The monthly celebration of food, health, and community scheduled for Saturday, October 12 is canceled. We will be back in November to celebrate Mexico and Día de los Muertos. Details will be announced soon!

11:30 am to 2:00 pm

Salud y Sabor is a free late morning/early afternoon of food, art, health, culture, and entertainment that celebrates our communities and connects families with nutrition, cooking, healthy lifestyles, and play. Once a month, community members gather for cooking demonstrations using fresh, locally grown ingredients, fun art and movement activities for kids and adults, health screenings, cultural exchange, and live entertainment.  Join us for free samples of local produce and special recipes. All activities emphasize traditional Latin American and Indigenous food and culture, basic information/free screenings from local Western and alternative health practitioners, and a vibrant atmosphere with art activities, storytelling, and live music.

This event is presented as a partnership between the NHCC, Agri-Cultura Network and Street Food Institute.

Thank you to our presenting sponsor UNM-Health Sciences Center!

This event is free and open to the public

Book Reading and Signing: Refugees, Rivers and Rebels with Renny Golden

October 19

6 pm

This presentation will feature poets Sen. Bill O’Neill, Margaret Randall, Damien Flores and Renny Golden.

Renny Golden’s The Music of Her Rivers pays homage to the Rio Grande and Illinois Rivers. Sharp-eyed and empathetic, Golden serves as a witness, documenting place, history, and people, especially those left voiceless due to violence or discrimination—from the refugee border crossers of the Rio Grande to the Irish immigrants and former slaves struggling to build lives in Chicago in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

This event is free and open to the public.
