HealthCorps students from local high schools, including Hiram Johnson, Health Professions and American Legion, joined representatives of the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services for a Taste the Rainbow food demonstration on January 22.

Taste the Rainbow was one of several Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service events nationwide coordinated by HealthCorps, a nonprofit co-founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife, Lisa.

“Empowering teens to make a difference in their community is a key component of HealthCorps’ mission,” said HealthCorps President Michelle Bouchard. “We all have something to give…it’s incredible to see how the students feel about themselves after the MLK Day of Service.”

The cooking demonstration was held at Del Paso Union Baptist Church.
