The South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church is partnering with the Prevention Research Center at the University of South Carolina to offer “Faith, Activity and Nutrition” – a free faith-based program that works to create a healthy church environment.
FAN is not an exercise program or a cooking class. Instead, FAN helps churches create an environment conducive to physical activity and healthy eating.
UMC volunteers, trained in the FAN program, will work with church committees to help them make changes to their church environment. For example, church leaders learn how to build physical activity into regular church activities. They also help church cooks modify recipes and menus to make traditional foods healthier – such as baked chicken instead of fried – and encourage them to switch to more fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
