Event description

Description

Eat Smart Move More South Carolina in partnership with the University of South Carolina Prevention Research Center is offering training to coalition and community members who are interested in being trained to deliver the Faith, Activity, and Nutrition (FAN) program (train-the-trainer model) to churches in their community! FAN is designed to create healthier church environments by promoting church-level opportunities, guidelines/policies, messages, and pastor support for physical activity and healthy eating.

This training is not intended for individual churches that are interested in putting the program in place in their church, but for coalitions and other groups interested in providing FAN training to churches. Please note that ESMMSC is asking for those who attend this training to commit to facilitating at least one training in their community for churches within 6 months of the training. Staff will be available for support and technical assistance throughout this process.

FAN training includes instruction and materials on how to:

  • Guide churches step-by-step through the process of developing a church plan to increase physical activity and healthy eating.

  • Demonstrate active breaks, a food demonstration/tasting, and a FAN-friendly lunch that can be built into the church setting.

  • Organize and facilitate a FAN training session for churches

Each participant will receive a FAN training guide and flash drive of FAN resources and materials that they can use to help them deliver to the FAN training to churches in their communities.
