COLONIA, Yap (Yap State Government) — As part of efforts to promote local food as a way of preventing disease in the State, the Waab Community Health Center and the Health Services Department are inviting interested groups and organizations in the community to take part in local food demonstrations during the upcoming 2013 Yap Day Celebration on March 1, 2013.
Health Services and the center are planning to have an exhibition of the variety of ready-made dishes for testing and for people to buy during the Yap Day celebration.
It has always been a strong part of the island’s tradition and heritage that local food and local produce are likened to medicine for the body, and it has been proven that local food prevented non-communicable diseases within the local population in the past.
Groups and organizations interested in joining the local food cooking demonstration activity should contact Marietta Turgen at 691-350-8351 during working hours.
