We have partnered with the United Way for Spoon River Country, and the local HyVee dietitian, on a new program called C.H.A.M.P. We hope to have the program ready to start on April 3rd.
Here are some of the details:
C.H.A.M.P. Program (Claiming a Healthy Attitude both Mentally and Physically)
*Must be a HWCFC client
*Client must have special diet needs such as: high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, or other health factors.
*Client must be working with their provider on their health condition. The HWCFC will also require a letter from the provider explaining diet restrictions.
*Client must participate in a 45 minute store walk-thru with the HyVee dietitian. These tours can be in groups of 5-7, or individually, if preferred. In these tours the client will learn how to read labels and compare foods.
*When using CHAMP HyVee gift cards, the client can only purchase foods allowed within their specified diet.
*Each time the client uses one of the CHAMP gift cards, they must bring the receipt to the HWCFC office. This is to ensure compliance and must be done before any more gift cards are given.
*Once the client starts attaining his/her goals, they can receive more gift cards.
