FoodFit is focused on supporting members of the community who want to make long-term improvements to their health through diet and exercise. The program was designed by Community Food Centres Canada with the help of health care professionals and has been tested and implemented at several Community Food Centres.
The program has been designed to accommodate a wide range of fitness levels. Walking outdoors is the main form of exercise - no spandex or equipment required!
FoodFit aims to give participants simple, useful tools to navigate an increasingly complex food environment.
