The Pan de Vida Foundation is hosting its 12th Annual Health Fair to provide families in Queen Creek, San Tan Valley and the surrounding areas with health screenings and education.

The fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Queen Creek Library, 21802 E. Ellsworth Road.

The aim of the fair is to safeguard the health of families who are unable to provide services for themselves.

The fair also will have entertainment for kids, raffles, prizes and food trucks.

Pan de Vida Foundation is a nonprofit 501 (C) (3) that works to improve the health of the children, senior citizens and families within the community.

The fair will provide free health and wellness screenings for adults and children that include:

  • Flu shots
  • Mammograms
  • Blood pressure checks
  • School readiness
  • Dental screenings
  • Diabetes screenings
  • Cholesterol checks
  • Breathing assessments
  • Osteoporosis assessments
  • Sports physicals
  • Pregnancy tests and ultrasounds

Those interested in attending the fair are asked to RSVP.

Pan de Vida Foundation was founded in 2003 with the Queen Creek Senior Citizens Center in partnership with the town of Queen Creek. At the same time, Meals for the Hungry and Homeless was started. A food bank was later created thanks to Bashas’.

The foundation is staffed by community volunteers. Community members can volunteer to help with the fair. Health and wellness professionals interested in taking part in the event can email  PdvEventInfo@gmail.com for more information.
