Organizations can order Faithful Families’ Eating Smart and Moving More Lessons, which includes nine sessions on healthy eating and physical activity strategies, including nutrition, meal preparation and cooking, food safety, and increasing daily physical activity. You can also order additional Chronic Disease Lessons, which focus on reducing risk of four chronic conditions. Through group discussions, recipe taste tests, and activities, individuals and families are encouraged to set goals to lead healthier lives. The curriculum also prompts discussions about changes that can be made in their organization and local community. Check out the tools and resources we offer for supporting these kinds of changes.

Organizations outside of North Carolina can order the curriculum. We also offer an online training to help you understand how the program works and how to best implement it.
