The Balanced Plate Scavenger Hunt invites kids to bounce around the festival, from kiosk to kiosk, earning stickers and a goody bag while learning how to make healthy, balanced food choices. Presentations for parents will discuss the key ingredients for finding that perfect balance between yummy and good-for-me.

In addition, festival attendees can enter a raffle and burn off some energy with free-admission to ice skating at Citi Pond at Bryant Park before or following festival activities.
A percentage of profits from the Festival will go to Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit organization working to end childhood hunger in America.
