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.

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 with all the necessary tools to eat healthy, learn about nutrition, and to also share the information with our 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 judgment.

New for 2024-Harmony Cafe's new improved wellness program.
