Breastfeeding fair, walk returns

WATSONVILLE — The 12th annual Breastfeeding Health Fair and Walk will return Aug. 10 from 3-6 p.m. at the Watsonville Plaza.

Hosted by the Community Bridges Women, Infants & Children (WIC) Nutrition Program, the event includes family activities, a live DJ, community resource booths, healthy snacks, free T-shirts, raffles and more.  

This event supports the City of Watsonville’s resolution proclaiming August as Breastfeeding Awareness Month and the State of California’s Assembly Concurrent Resolution 234. Breastfeeding Awareness is celebrated throughout California during the month of August, as part of a statewide effort to highlight the benefits of breastfeeding and show support to breastfeeding mothers.

WIC is a federally funded nutrition program that provides healthy foods, nutrition and breastfeeding education and support, and referrals to community resources for pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, and infants and children up to age 5.

The event will include a rally down Main Street beginning at 5 p.m.
