“Southern Ain’t Fried Sundays”

Program works to educate African American churches in Arkansas about healthier alternatives to preparing and cooking southern-style foods.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Big Sunday meals are one of the things that bring families together.

Here in the South what you'll usually find on the table are foods are known for their richness and high calorie count. Those foods also get the blame for some health problems.

That's why a project has been started that's called “Southern Ain’t Fried Sundays” (SAFS), a faith-based outreach program.

It's a project uniquely designed to educate African American churches and organizations about healthier alternatives to preparing and cooking southern-style foods. 

It is also a creative mechanism for partnering with these groups in an effort to educate their members about the signs and symptoms of stroke, diabetes, and heart attacks. It is estimated that more than 10,000 Arkansans have been exposed to the SAFS program through this faith-based outreach initiative.
