KNUST Wellness Centre holds ‘Fresh Foods Fair’

The KNUST Wellness Centre has held a week-long ‘Fresh Foods Fair’ at the KNUST campus, Kumasi.

The centre, headed by Professor (Mrs.) Ibok Oduro, organised the fair in collaboration with the university’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and Estate Organisation, at the KNUST Commercial Area.

The fair, dubbed “Eat Fresh, Stay Healthy this festive season” was organised to provide fresh and healthy foodstuff for the University Community within the festive season.

The Secretary for the KNUST Wellness Committee, Mr. Rabbi Darko, disclosed that it is important that wellness individuals advocate the need for staff members to prioritise their health and put in more effort to eat and stay healthy.

This, he added, would ensure that the University Community always has energetic staff to push the wheels of the affairs of the University to attain success.
