Literacy, Food, & Fitness (LFF)

Presented at AmeriCorps Member Training, January 2007 San Diego, CA.

We all eat, and most of us love the food we eat, but does it love us? Join us in a presentation that explores how to help people make healthy choices. Pat Jarvis, Families for Literacy Coordinator, has developed a user-friendly, complete curriculum on healthy choices called Literacy, Food, and Fitness (LFF). The material is designed to be used during an FFL, MLLS, or library story time and includes an overview of the principles covered, story time tips, suggestions for books, finger plays and songs, parent handouts in English and Spanish, and more.

Join Pat Jarvis and Holly Fulghum-Nutters in a presentation that shows how to bring this curriculum to people in your community.
