2021 Awareness & Fundraising Breakfast
Introductory conversation about food security & food justice with Abbie Young!
There is so much strength in nonprofit collaboration and our work with WNC nonprofit Bounty & Soul is incredibly vital to our community as there is a clear intersection with our services.
An estimated 50.4 million people currently experience food insecurity and research has shown that prolonged periods of food insecurity may establish problematic eating patterns in both adults and children. For some of these food insecure individuals, disordered eating habits can progress into a fully developed eating disorder.
Please join Abbie on June 7th at 5:30pm – RSVP here by Noon Friday 6/4 to receive your Zoom link for this FREE introductory conversation about food security & food justice. In this hour-long session, Abbie will discuss food insecurity statistics and basics, what food insecurity can look like, how food insecurity and security intersects the work we are doing with eating disorders awareness & recovery, and resources & approaches to support people experiencing food insecurity.
Abbie Young, RD, LDN, RYT, CMI is a contractor with Bounty & Soul- a local food security, food justice, and community health & nutrition non-profit and an Outpatient Dietitian with Nutritious Thoughts- a group practice of Registered Dietitians who specialize in eating disorders, non-diet approaches, Health at Every Size, and more.

Save the date for the 14th Annual HEAL Retreat. That’s right! Retreat; not Conference.
This year, instead of more workshops and CEs we’re shifting gears and preparing for a full day of care-for-the-provider sessions and connection. We’ll have dynamic speakers and networking while we spend a gorgeous WNC fall day rejuvenating. Doesn’t that sound so good!? After this past year and now with re-entry to ‘normal,’ this is how we have chosen to provide professional development for eating disorders clinicians in 2021. Stay tuned for more information soon. For now… please just put it on your calendar and plan to be with us on Friday, October 8th! Ahhhhhhh
