 According to a report written by a panel of national nutrition experts, a lack of knowledge on nutrition can negatively affect our health in the long run. In fact, they claim that poor nutrition is the leading cause of illness in the US

 

Lack of Social Support

Social support groups can impact and influence your attitudes and behaviors. If your social group tends to value exercising or eating nutritious foods, you will likely be affected by these views and actions. A study from Bingham Young University found that people with social relationships live 50 percent longer than people who are more socially isolated.

 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"
