WHAT IS

FOODFIT?

FoodFit is a 12-week program for low-income community members who experience barriers around healthy eating and physical activity but who are motivated to make lasting changes to their health.

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, and reflection and feedback loops that monitor and reinforce individual and group progress.

 The program also collects biometric indicators at the start and end of the program, and provides pedometers so participants can monitor daily steps. FoodFit respects the limits of people’s circumstances, and aims to give participants simple, useful tools to navigate an increasingly complex food environment.

FoodFit was developed with input from a medical doctor, nutritionists, Community Food Centres Canada staff, and community members. It’s offered by several Canadian organizations, including The Local Community Food Centre in Stratford, The Table Community Food Centre in Perth, Interior Community Services in Kamloops, BC, and Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association in Calgary, AB.
