The First African Methodist (FAME) Episcopal Church

FAME Episcopal Church partnered with local schools to provide a Let's Move Carnival. The carnival focused on factors that lead to childhood obesity targeting teachers and students during the school lunch hour. Local and state officials, other faith leaders, and members of the community were invited to attend.

In preparation for the event, FAME Episcopal Church used its existing partner network to mobilize resources for the event including collecting donated products that could be used as giveaways. Through its network of community partners and resources of the local school district, FAME was able to host a dance classes, a farmers market, exercise exhibitions, provide nutrition education and provide examples of healthy choices at local food eateries at the carnival.
