(Thursday, Feb. 2, 2023) – The City of Rochester and Rochester City Council welcome citizens to a Total Health & Wellness Pop-Up event on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2023 from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. at the David F. Gantt R-Center, 700 North St.

40–50 health, wellness and other quality of life service providers will be on hand to provide information, services, and resources on housing, food assistance, medical and mental health, addictions, and more. The pop-up fair will feature food, winter clothing items and other giveaways.

“This collaboration of City Hall and City Council demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that residents are aware of, and have easy access to, the services and resources that are available to them,” said Mayor Malik D. Evans. “I want to thank our community and government partners for working with us to identify, fund, and connect city residents with the critical resources and support they need,” said Mayor Evans.

The pop-up events were developed specifically to provide city residents with greater access to health, wellness, and quality of life services, and resources. The events are the outcome of recommendations from the Committee on Racial and Structural Equity (RASE), specifically, on enhancing neighborhood resources and programs by bringing health and wellness services into the neighborhoods that need them most.

A second pop-up event is scheduled for 11 a.m.–1 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 22 at The Honorable Willie Walker Lightfoot R-Center for Equity & Justice, 271 Flint St. For more information, visit
