The Healthy Roots Foundation
will host its fourth annual Midsummer Harvest
, “a picnic experience featuring a local, organic and sustainably raised feast” prepared by some of the region’s best chefs, June 12 in Covington's MainStrasse Village.
This year’s event will benefit the advancement of integrative, holistic care and nutrition programming — like Build-It-Bites, a weekly cooking workshop for patients and their families — at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital
“We’re thrilled that the money from this year’s Midsummer Harvest is going to the Integrative Care Team for this new program,” Healthy Roots Foundation founder Anne Schneider says. “Build-it-Bites is a unique way to help families in the hospital, and it’s a great fit for our mission.”
The Healthy Roots Foundation aims to create and support prenatal and pediatric health research, education and events, and the Midsummer Harvest fits into the nonprofit’s mission as it seeks to raise awareness regarding sustainably raised foods and the link to children’s health.
Dr. Carina Braeutigam, Medical Director, Integrative Services and Staff Physician at Cincinnati Children’s Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute, will serve as guest speaker at the picnic lunch, with music to be provided by The Tillers.
