FoodFit is an innovative initiative by Community Food Centres Canada. The FREE program is designed to bring people together to set goals, learn skills, and make measurable changes in overall health and fitness, with a focus on nutrition and exercise.
Over the course of 12 weeks, participants will be immersed in the areas of cooking, nutrition knowledge, and physical activity. The target audience is individuals from low-income communities who are self-motivated to make healthy changes, but for whom social barriers play a significant role in achieving optimal health and wellness.
We began offering FoodFit in September 2016 and are funded by Community Food Centres Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada. We offer two classes at a time, they are 3 hour classes once a week for 12 weeks. Each class has a nutrition knowledge component, exercise component, and cooking component. And the best part: Classes are FREE!
As a Fitness Accessories sponsor, Flamen Fitness and Healthcare in Lethbridge has provided Yoga Mats, Yoga Blocks and Sleeved Resistance Bands for the exercise portion of our FoodFit program.
