The Whole Family is Invited to Fun and Fit in the City presented by Target, A Day of Food, Fun and Fitness hosted by Food Network Star Guy Fieri!The Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE brings back its featured family program Fun and Fit in the City presented by Target and hosted by Guy Fieri for 2012. Taking place on Saturday, October 13 at Basketball City (Pier 36), both children and their parents will enjoy a full day of healthy food samplings, fitness activities, star-studded cooking demonstrations, and much more!
Created to help educate families about healthy and simple lifestyle options, Fun and Fit in the City presented by Target is a full day of activity that is open to everyone. Food Network’s Guy Fieri will serve as the ultimate host – cooking, running, jumping and sampling with fellow Food Network friends Rachael Ray, Sunny Anderson, Melissa d’Arabian, Giada De Laurentiis and Andrew Zimmern.
“I can’t wait to have a rockin’ time showin’ families how to get down in the kitchen and prepare delicious, healthy meals,” said event host Guy Fieri. “Gettin’ the whole family involved in cooking, just like I do every day at home with my wife and kids, makes for an awesome meal!”
Presented by Target, both parents and kids will be delighted to spend the day playing foosball, shooting hoops, dancing, testing their fast pitch skills, and enjoying more interactive areas to keep the whole family on the move. More fitness activities, healthy food samplings, games, book signings, and even a super-powered vegetable superhero puppet show from Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign will keep everyone entertained. Families will also have the opportunity to get more involved in helping to end hunger in their community by participating in a “repacking” activity where children and their parents can pack a box of donated goods for families’ in-need that will go straight to the Food Bank For New York City.
