Press release from Lunch Break of Red Bank

This Saturday, June 28, the Red Bank-based nonprofit Lunch Break and The Community YMCA are co-sponsoring a Community Health Fair, at CYMCA’s facility on Maple Avenue. Scheduled to be held between the hours of noon and 3 pm, it marks a natural collaboration between Lunch Break — an organization whose mission statement says in part, “our mission is to alleviate hunger and lead those we serve to self-sufficiency and healthier lifestyles” —  and the YMCA, a 140-year mainstay of local life whose mission is to promote healthy living and support the health and well-being of the entire community.

Health care, mental health care, social service professionals, military veterans resources, and Pawsitive Action will be on hand at the health fair to provide information.  There will be exercise demonstrations and games, as well as giveaways and refreshments. Everyone is welcome, and attendees are encouraged to bring family and friends.

Free screenings and tests will be provided for blood pressure, glucose levels, cholesterol levels, body mass index (BMI), stroke risk, and HIV.

In addition to Lunch Break and the Red Bank YMCA, participating organizations at the event are NjCEED, the Parker Family Health Center, the VNA Health Group, Meridian Health, the Red Bank Resource Network and Sandy Wellness Programs, and the Mental Health Association of Monmouth County.
