Lone Star College-Tomball and Communities in Schools of Houston present the Healthy Harvest Food and Wellness Fair on Nov. 6 from 9 a.m.-noon, offering free fresh produce, low-cost flu shots and health screenings, according to an Oct. 23 release.

The event is open to LSC-Tomball students and local residents with supplies available on a first-come, first-served basis.

"The food is free to LSC-Tomball students and everyone in the Tomball-area community," said Kristin Carpenter, the CIS program manager at LSC-Tomball, in a statement.

The free food is supplied by the Houston Food Bank's mobile pantry.

"It's like a free farmer's market on 18 wheels," Carpenter said in a statement.

Additionally the event includes flu shots by Walgreen's and Shots for Holly, a nonprofit organization, and free HIV testing by Avenue 360. Tomball Emergency Assistance Ministries and Planned Parenthood will also be on-site offering information. Flu shots are available to insured and uninsured patients, but attendees are encouraged to bring an insurance card if available.
“We’re privileged to support Lone Star College in [its] commitment to provide students with whatever they may need, to take some of the burden off of students so they can focus on earning their college degree, certificate or continuing education hours,” Carpenter said in a statement.

The event is held at the Beckendorf Conference Center, located at 30555 Hwy. 249, Tomball.
