Educate low-income individuals with healthy growing and eating practices, information, statistics, health problem trends, teenage inactivity, obesity & other troubling trends, additives, preservatives, addictive substances in processed foods and etc. (Obesity is most prevalent in lower income families who can only afford cheaper products such as Kraft Dinner and Ramen Noodles).
Educate the church concerning the above, and how the churches can help our communities by offering natural, GOD designed solutions.
