Bring FEAST Programs to Your Community
Join FEAST’s growing community of teachers who are leading our groups around the country. As explained by a group leader in Nebraska, “FEAST is a comprehensive program that allows participants to not only learn how to eat but also why they eat a certain way.”
By attending a FEAST Leadership Training, you will learn the core principles and techniques that make FEAST a transformational program, and you will walk away prepared to lead FEAST programs in your local community. You will also meet like-minded individuals, build deep connections, and become part of a network of leaders who are passionate about bringing health and wellness programs to all.

Launching a program in your community through our train-the-trainer model begins with these simple steps:
- Participate in a 3-day FEAST leadership training

FEAST has challenged me as an educator and has been a great experience for me to improve professionally... I feel more comfortable in that educator role.”
- Providence Health Leader, Southern California
“I had such a good feeling about this program when I first discovered it. Every week that passes, you get to see the evidence of change… virtually every week, someone will say ‘I can’t believe I’m eating this and I like it’”
- Community Action Network Leader, Nebraska
“This program is unique because whatever relationship you have with food, you’re going to walk away with a different understanding of it... About four classes in, participants start to show changes. Their appearance and attitude changes, how they share is different. They come in glowing.” — Lucia, FEAST Leader, Providence Health Educator
The cost to participate in FEAST's three-day training is $375 per person. This includes the FEAST training manual, content for 5 sample classes with corresponding teaching guide content, recipe ingredients, and more.
Once certified, FEAST leaders may purchase FEAST's full curriculum package and user license for an additional fee of $625.
