The United Way of Kern County is partnering with No Kid Hungry, State Farm, Community Action Partnership of Kern and Capital Dental to bring another installment of Healthy Minds Healthy Bodies to Fairfax Junior High on Wednesday. 

The event is a distribution of food, books and dental hygiene kits to low-income children and families, which looks to address two of the largest issues in Kern County — low literacy rates and hunger, according to a United Way news release.
