NYC: Save The Date For La Feria De Salud!

Feria2010_eng_new  Saludos Mi Gente…

Sofrito For Your Soul is proud to be one of the sponsors La Feria De Salud for the second year in a row. This event is the single most important initiative I have ever been involved with both as a volunteer and as a sponsor.

Now I do not have Diabetes…but Diabetes has a long sad history within the Torres family…both my paternal grandparents and my dad sufferred from complications that were pre-empted by Diabetes. Chances are if I do not change my own personal lifestyle…I too will have Diabetes. I have met so many wonderful people at the Latino Initiatives Commitee that assured me that the work that they do is for people just like me…I still have hope. I am doing this in their memory…as well as for my own personal survival.

Feria de Salud is an outdoor community event that is intended to reach thousands of local Latinos/Hispanics with the important message that they may be at risk for diabetes. Feria captures the festive elements of a street fair, but maintains the important aspects of choosing and managing a healthier lifestyle for the entire Latino family. The atmosphere of Feria includes music, dancing, nutritional information, cooking demonstrations, speakers on topics related to diabetes, and a variety of product and service booths.

In the coming weeks, I will be sharing all kinds of information about this project and how you can get involved in this fight against this killer disease.

But for starters…I know how much my readers love food…sooo to request your free copy of our Latin Flavor in the Kitchen Recipe Sampler and to receive a free guide on type 2 diabetes (request ADA Channel number 2), call 1-800-DIABETES (342-2383).

Bilingual representatives are available to take your call.

Buen Provecho!!!!

As I am,
