About Ninth Annual Maw Maw’s Collard Green Cook-off and Wellness Expo
An exciting celebration of food, health and wellness, and community fun promoting the healthy living programs of Urban Ministry, the event is expected to draw more than 500 people.
Attendees will be able to tour the WE Community Gardens, connect with traditional and non-traditional health practitioners, purchase goods from local vendors, and, of course, enjoy delicious, healthy collard greens, cornbread and more. This annual fall event will also feature live music, spoken word, and activities for children. A highlight of the day is the 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. Maw Maw’s Collard Green Cook-off and Wellness Expo truly has something for everyone! “You come for the food, but you stay for the fellowship,” said Urban Ministry Junior Staff Intern Denzel Stevenson.
