FoodFit is an innovative initiative by Community Food Centres Canada. The program is designed to bring people together, help set goals, learn skills, and make measurable changes in overall health and fitness.  FoodFit focuses on nutrition and exercise. Over the course of 12 weeks, participants will be immersed in the areas of cooking, nutrition knowledge, and physical activity.

This will be the sixth offering of FoodFit in Cranbrook. Past participants have reported awesome results in many different facets of their lives; including new skills, new connections and friends, and new physiques. FoodFit is offered nationwide and the stats are staggering.

  • 72% reported an improvement in their physical health, and 72% in their mental health;
  • 95% learned something new about preparing and cooking healthier meals;
