WV city focus of TV show on healthy eating
HUNTINGTON, WV -- The West Virginia city dubbed the nation's unhealthiest is about to see its battles with eating and cooking get aired on network TV.
Huntington is featured when celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's six-part "Food Revolution" airs on ABC Friday.
Oliver brought his cooking style to Huntington to help residents win battles against bulging waistlines.
His interest came after data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed the Huntington metropolitan area to be the nation's unhealthiest.
Oliver's arrival wasn't appreciated at first by many, but now local officials have embraced his message that eating healthy is not hard to do.
Cabell-Huntington Hospital has donated $80,000 to train school cooks to make healthier meals.
