¡Salud y Sabor! Mundo Latino–Chef Showdown

5:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Salud y Sabor, a partnership between the Agri-cultura Network, Street Food Institute, and the NHCC, is a free evening of food, art, and entertainment aimed at providing families with an opportunity to connect around nutrition, cooking, healthy lifestyles, and culture.

Once a month, community members gather for cooking demonstrations using fresh, locally grown ingredients, as well as fun art activities for kids and adults, health screenings, and live entertainment. An emphasis is placed on exploring traditional Hispanic dishes, providing basic information/free screenings from local Western and alternative health practitioners, and creating a vibrant atmosphere with art activities and live music. In most months, free samples of local produce are available.

This month’s theme is Mundo Latino–Chef Showdown.

For more information on Salud y Sabor, contact David Torres at 505/246-2261 or email him DavidM.Torres@state.nm.us
