Urban Ministry Presents 8th Annual Collard Green Cook-off and Wellness Expo

Birmingham, AL–Urban Ministry is pleased to present the 8th Annual Collard Green Cook-off and Wellness Expo, a celebration of food, wellness, and community promoting the healthy living programs at Urban Ministry. More than 500 guests are expected to gather together at Urban Ministry (1229 Cotton Avenue SW, 35211) on Saturday, October 15 from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm.

Attendees to Urban Ministry’s Collard Green Cook-off and Wellness Expo will be able to tour the community gardens, watch cooking demonstrations, connect with traditional and non-traditional health practitioners, purchase from local vendors, and sample healthy collard greens and cornbread. Collard Green cook-off competitors who reside in West End’s five communities will vie for bragging rights offering the best of their healthy, creative, culinary recipes with no pork included. “We see this fun-filled day as a way to engage in preventative awareness rather than just treatment,” said Urban Ministry Wellness Programs Director Ama Shambulia. This annual fall staple will also feature live music, spoken word, and activities for children among the hustle and bustle of Birmingham’s West End. For years, this event has left an undeniable mark on the fabric of this community.

The Collard Green Cook-off and Wellness Expo will be held at Urban Ministry located at 1229 Cotton Avenue SW, Birmingham, AL 35211.  For more information or to schedule a media interview contact Angela Moore at angela@urban-ministry.org.
