Grand Rapids, MI (WOODTV) - Our next Connecting with Community Awards Finalist is Guiding Light Mission. This mission located in the heartside district of Grand Rapids collaborated with local colleges in the area to help change the diets and habits at the mission.
Student volunteers helped the men staying at the mission start 2000 calorie a day diets, work out 10 hours a week, and eat more fruits and vegetables. Men in the program lost significant amount of weight, lowered blood pressure and reduced the rick of chronic disease.
Eva Aguirre Cooper visited Guiding Light Mission to give us a closer look at the collaboration.
