Parks, who represented Okaloosa Head Start, said the service particularly benefited the nonprofit’s clients.

"I work with families that don't have health insurance,” she said. “So what we do is find out when it is and make sure to notify them."

The Childcare Network of Crestview handed out free fruit to attendees to promote nutritious habits.

 "We are just trying to promote children's healthy eating," director Cheri Pittman said.

Volunteers also grilled free hamburgers and hot dogs for those in attendance.

Adam  Chinnasami, 14, a North Carolina native, was invited by his uncle, Dr. Joseph Peters, to introduce a nutrition initiative.
