The Student Nutrition and Wellness Advocates at College of the Canyons (SNAC) group will host its first campus-wide Eating Disorder and Body Image Prevention Program during national ‘Fat Talk Free Week’ Oct. 19-28.

With major partners including Seventeen Magazine, the National Organization for Women (NOW), the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) and the Academy for Eating Disorders (AED), Fat Talk Free Week is a five-day public awareness campaign that is designed to draw attention to and halt the damaging impact of the ‘thin ideal’ for women in today’s society.

At College of the Canyons the week’s events will include a “Real Beauty Is...” art display and silent auction and the ‘EveryBODY is Beautiful’ Fashion Show “featuring COC student models, in the Honor Grove from 12:30 to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 21. In addition, SNAC members will be distributing Fat Talk Free Week pledge cards around campus.

The week’s activities will conclude with a free public viewing of the film “Beauty Mark” from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 28 in the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) at College of the Canyons.

Those planning on attending the event do not need to RSVP, however early seating is recommended.
