The Evansville Icemen games are facing off at the Ford Center again, the U.E Basketball season will soon tip off, and concerts and other events on tap.the concession stands are full of items ready to be sold.The upgrade campaign and ford center are getting the word out about healthy food choices available. Whether our officers and firefighters are duking it out..or the Lady Aces are lighting up the scoreboard, it's pretty hard to enjoy a Ford Center event empty- handed. "The old health options were a little bland and so we've kind of worked on that to make sure our food actually tastes good so when you're eating healthy it's not a penalty just an option," says Executive Director Scott Schoenike. That's right, no fouls here, just choices. Schoenike tells us our society is becoming more health conscious saying "People come to an arena they kind of think hot dogs, beer, nachos, and kind of all those unhealthy options and nationwide...people are actually asking for these items and demanding it so it's actually responding to what people are asking for." The Ford Center's new team is the Welborn Baptist Foundation, and they're pairing up providing you the same unique atmosphere, with a shot of wholesome options. "It's an experience with the whole Upgrade process to take the stairs more often and eat healthier and still enjoy a game and not feel that you're doing anything different," Schoenike explains. So think twice about what you eat while you're whooping and hollering.. it's all in an effort to upgrade to a better you.
