BEHIND OUR FORKS
Bringing Peace With Food and Body Acceptance to Adolescent Students
THE FIGHT BEHIND OUR FORKS
AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
Our organization, The Fight Behind Our Forks, works to raise awareness of contributory factors that lead to potentially fatal eating disorders, as well as disordered eating, all too often. Eating disorders are the #1 cause of death, over any other mental illness. Eating disorders, especially in the pre-adolescent as well as adolescent age groups, are becoming a pandemic.
The Fight Behind Our Forks visits middle schools and high schools, sharing information about disordered eating, eating disorders, and body image. We have designed a program perfect for a school assembly, as our presentation consists of information as well as short activities. Our goal is to help prevent eating disorders in adolescents.
