Still staying close to home? FoodFit has moved online! Big thank you to Community Food Centres Canada for funding this initiative which is supporting community members who may have health concerns and/or interested in learning new healthy activity and food skills as they work towards improved health and well-being.
This six-week online interactive class includes a wide variety of participants including a number of newcomers, all ages, a number of people who have food intolerances, and vegetarians. We support all types of diets with the goal of helping people realize better health.
In a nutshell, the program combines fun, hands-on cooking sessions and food-based activities with take- home recipes, easy-to-understand nutrition information, group exercise, shared meals, self-directed individual and group goal-setting
We support each participants’ own motivation for change helping them move from current attitudes and less healthy circumstances toward realistic, sustainable healthier behaviours.
Feed back from past participants has been very positive and wonderful for us to know that the program is helping people feel good in their life. As one participant expressed, “the knowledge about different types of food variety and preparation brought about a positive change in me as I try various ingredients. The positive, very stimulating and encouraging approach of our facilitator is uplifting and brought out the best of all participants. Sharing and working together provided positive energy as well”. Another participant remarked that ” I can make more balanced meal every day. I know how to choose the healthier food than before”.
Join our free & fun online FoodFit program! This 6-week program is for community members who experience barriers around healthy eating and physical activity but who are motivated to make lasting changes to their health. The zoom sessions combine fun, online cooking and food-based activities with easy-to-understand nutrition information, self-directed individual and group goal-setting, and reflection that will reinforce individual and group progress. FoodFit respects the limits of people’s circumstances, and aims to give participants simple, useful tools to navigate an increasingly complex food environment.
