Body and Soul is a wellness program developed for African American churches. The program empowers church members to eat 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables every day for better health. Churches that embrace Body & Soul help their members take care of their bodies as well as their spirits.

Body & Soul works by combining

• Pastor leadership
• Educational activities
• A church environment that supports healthy eating
• Peer counseling

Why Body & Soul

African Americans are a high risk for many serious and often fatal diseases. These include high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer. African Americans are also more likely to suffer serious health problems and die from these diseases. What can you do to lower your risk for disease? The National Cancer Institute recommends eating 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
A diet rich in fruits and vegetables promotes good health and lowers the risk for these illnesses. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables may be one of the easiest things you can do to improve your health.
