Although the new school year may be just around the corner, it's not too late to have some last-minute summer fun. Tomorrow morning at the Whole Foods Market in Davie, along with PBS station, WPBT2 will host Back to School Live, a free event open to the public and featuring celebrity appearances, giveaways, and more.
Chef Michelle Bernstein will be on hand giving live cooking demonstrations and offering healthy-eating tips. To complement the Miami chef's culinary expertise, lucky attendees will receive PBS backpacks full of 365 Everyday Value juice boxes, fruit leathers, and more.
Bernstein is one of Miami's leading chefs and has been a longtime supporter of community-supported efforts geared toward healthy eating. She has appeared on national television shows like Top Chef, as well as WPBT2 program Check Please! South Florida, where she and local diners from Broward, Palm Beach, and Dade counties review restaurants throughout the tricounty area.
Bernstein won't be appearing alone. Amid the healthy eating, Miss Penny of Learning Is Fun fame will leading education tables chock-full of activities for kids. Clifford the Big Red Dog will also be on hand for family photos and maybe even a piggyback ride or two.
Back to School Live will take place on Thursday, August 13, at the Whole Foods Market in Davie. Festivities kick off at 10:30 a.m. and will run until around 2 p.m. Free snacks and other giveaways will be available as long as supplies last.
