Event description

Description

This is a new health awareness initiative designed by Food for Purpose.

It is part of an overall nutrition and well being platform, to reach BME faith groups called the Healthy Organisation Initiative.

The six week pilot, which involved the recruitment of 27 adults; was held at a local, predominantly African Christian group in South East London. This Dietitian led project is unique in its content, delivery, cultural appreciation and embracement of the ‘faith environment’ as part of the motivation to make healthy changes.

The results are both interesting and compelling.

There is a strong indication, that delivering such programmes in a ‘faith environment;’ as part of the worship services & meetings in a familiar, safe environment— can successfully promote lifestyle changes, which can in turn improve, sustain and impact health in BME faith groups.
