Fit & Food Corner

The F&F Corner is the online extension of The Fit and Food Connection’s (FAFC) mission to provide healthy living resources to low income families throughout the greater St. Louis area. The FAFC believes that true holistic wellness comes from five things: Exercise, Nutrition, Stress/Sleep Management, Goal Setting, and positivity. Although we would love for everyone to be able to attend our events in person we know that your busy lifestyle might not always allow that. This is where the Fit and Food Corner comes in. This page contains resources that complement our in-person events and classes so that you have the resources to improve your health at the tips of your fingers.
