Wellness Program that provides health education- cooking skills-healthy food- group support setting
The Feast Program was a very impactful learning experience. We were provided all the necessary tools to eat healthy, learn about nutrition and to also share the information with are family and friends. Being a part of the Feast Program also gave me a safe space to talk about my eating disorder and ask questions with no judgement.
My experience in the program has been extremely positive. I hope more people can learn about it and participate. Learning to eat healthy food and sharing weekly with others in this group has encouraged me to try other plantbased recipes and offer these foods to my family. Thank you to the volunteers and sponsors for offering this program"
