Beyond Hunger’s Peer Education Program
We train peer educators (ages 15-25) to teach teens about disordered eating and body hatred prevention through classroom presentations. Beyond Hunger’s multi-media classroom presentation is helping to bring an end to Body Hatred and Eating Disorders!
A group of young women between the ages of 15-25 meet bi-weekly to train as peer educators. Together with professional facilitators, the peers present Beyond Hunger’s multi-media PowerPoint presentation to middle and high school classes, as well as other youth, parent, and teacher groups.

Beyond Hunger’s philosophy is based on a three-pronged approach to combating the current eating disorder epidemic. By speaking about Body Image, Intuitive Eating and Emotional Intelligence, we bring awareness to both the issues that give rise to body hatred and eating disorders, as well as the tools to free ourselves from the obsession with food and weight.
“Our school is in West Marin, Bolinas-Stinson Union school. We have about 35 middle school students (6-8 grade).
You came last year and did a Fantastic Presentation for the students, they wore the [Love Every Body] stickers on their clothes for days and talked about the issues you discussed for weeks after you left. I know the information you presented to them made a difference in how they see themselves and others.”
-Maud Zimmer, MFT School Counselor
