Texas Tech University will host Feed Your Body and Soul Week, a series of events aimed at raising awareness about eating disorders, body image and soulful living running from Sunday (Feb. 26) through March 4.
Feed Your Body and Soul Week is held in conjunction with National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. The theme for this year's event is "#IAMENOUGH" and is meant to encourage the realization that worth is inherent, not based on clothing, appearance or any other external factor.
The National Eating Disorders Association reports as many as 10 million females and 1 million males in the United States struggle with an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia. Approximately 15 million more are struggling with binge eating disorder. Feed Your Body and Soul Week is one way students on the Texas Tech campus can work to increase awareness and practice body acceptance.
Events happening throughout the week include:
