The program was facilitated by Yvonne Murphy, Nutrition Program Assistant with the Edgecombe County division of North Carolina Cooperative Extension.
Seventeen families were served during the seven-week program. During each session, participants were presented with a host of nutritional tips, healthy recipes, food safety techniques, as well as fun ways to stay physically active during the day. In addition, participants were given a cookbook, cutting board, electric skillet, lunch bag, and water bottle.
Fall sessions of "Food, Fitness, and Fun" will be announced soon. Contact Lanetta McEachern at 252-641-2614 for more information.
