Southern Ain't Fried Sundays
“Southern Ain’t Fried Sundays” Faith Based Outreach Program
“Southern Ain’t Fried Sundays” (SAFS) is 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.
The program is being revamped to expand its reach to the Hispanic communities and individual participants. The program manager continues to obtain appropriate recipes for the new SAFS cookbooks. A registered dietician is currently reviewing the recipes to make sure the content is healthy and provide recommendations for changes to recipes.
