San Antonio Food Bank’s Mobile Mercado, a “Farmacy on Wheels,” will also be on-site. The mini grocery store on wheels includes an area where chefs and nutritionists will demonstrate how to make tasty nutritious, diabetes-conscious meals. There’s also a food truck attached to this vehicle healthy meal options using ingredients sourced from their farm.

To round out the wellness vibe, the Harvey E. Najim Family YMCA will host free community fitness classes at their location, 3122 Roosevelt Ave. on Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m.
