It’s mission is stated clearly, “Through God’s word, prayer and guidance it will touch the hearts of many. It will be accomplished through forums, small groups and one-on-one relationships. This network of people will encourage and walk beside each other to accomplish individual goals.”
According to spokesman Jay Adams, the C3 Food Network consists of a team of nutritionists, doctors and volunteers who are working to create a better environment in eating through creative recipes, and encouraging folks to get healthier through their knowledge of what they eat.
This fall through next spring, C3 Food Network will host a series of forums aimed at informing and encouraging healthy eating habits.
The first program is set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10 at C3. Dr. Amy Jean, a pediatric endocrinologist will present a talk on the explosion of Type II diabetes in children and how it can be related to what we feed our children. The event will feature interactive healthy food stations as well as a buffet of healthy kid-friendly foods.

She said copies of the recipies on the buffet will be available to take home.
