FoodFit, a program developed by Community Food Centres Canada, is now being offered through Cowichan Green Community Foundation to bring low-income community members together to set goals, learn skills, and make measurable changes in overall health and fitness. The goal of the FoodFit program is to support community members to become better nourished, more active, and less socially isolated.
