The Consumer Assistance Program and VI/SHIP Medicare recently joined forces to conduct outreach at the 2014 Agricultural and Food Fair of the Virgin Islands, or Agrifest. Agrifest was held from February 15-17 at the Oscar E. Henry Memorial Fairgrounds on St. Croix.
Staff made contact with approximately 400 fairgoers during the three day event. Fairgoers had the opportunity to speak one-on-one with staff and also received reusable bags containing program information.
