WE GOT THE BEET – Free for Adults & Children


Join the Beet for a fifth year as we move, shake, and EVEN BAKE our way to wellness! This program will include movement and cooking demonstrations in order to engage a variety of learners. With COVID-19 regulations, we will be having virtual and in person events. Our team will post educational videos about nutrition, health, and physical activity on FaceBook and Instagram. Links to these videos can be found on any of our social media platforms (linked below). Watch weekly to build your knowledge of a healthy lifestyle!

The We Got the Beet campaign videos will be posted every Saturday at 12PM from June 5th, 2021 to August 8th, 2021. We will also have a booth at the Lynchburg Community Market starting June 5th from 10am-2PM with resources and prizes for our weekly winners. Educational programming will be offered for both children and adults.





We Got the Beet, a collaborative effort between the City of Lynchburg, Central Virginia Health District of Virginia Department of Health, and Virginia Cooperative Extension, builds on the previous successes of the award-winning Lynchburg is for Locavores campaign that raised awareness about eating locally produced fresh and healthy foods.
