We did it again! A fun and healthy Halloween After-Party where trick-or-treaters exchange their excess candy for cash and chances to win sweet prizes. The collected candy is NOT donated to charity for others to eat, instead we're using it as BioFuel Feedstock. Dr. Evans donates pound for pound, fresh Canadian apples to the Food Bank in place of the Candy. This healthy Halloween event cultivates discussion and change in areas of nutrition and lifestyle. It aligns with our philosophy and holistic approach to oral and overall wellness. Thank you SPUD for crafting the ghoulish green smoothies this year, Apple Lady for the beautiful fruit and Light Cellar for real chocolate!
