First lady talks faith and food on BET

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Headlining Black Entertainment Television's Sunday morning line-up was first lady Michelle Obama on the network's popular program, "Lift Every Voice."

Replete with high-energy inspirational sermons and gospel music, BET programming crescendoed into a half-hour special, catching up with the first lady while she was on tour promoting the second anniversary of her "Let's Move" health campaign.

"For so many of us, food is more than just nourishment to our bodies, it's how we knit our families and our communities together," Obama said as she addressed an audience on her nationwide tour.

And, particularly true in the African-American community, faith and food go together; Sunday worship is often followed by feasting.
