Southern Ain’t Fried Sundays (SAFS) is a program of the Arkansas Minority Health Commission uniquely designed to educate African American and Hispanic churches, communities and organizations about healthier alternatives to preparing and cooking traditional style meals. It is also a creative mechanism to help in the reduction of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity. The SAFS program includes the 21-Day Meal Replacement Plan designed to gradually introduce individuals to healthier food alternatives. In conjunction with the meal plan, participants will be introduced to the newest component of the SAFS program - Walk With Ease, a fitness program founded by the Arthritis Foundation to help reduce arthritic pain and improve health. Groups and or individuals are encouraged to participate.
