Pastor Bans Fried Chicken 

As a means to address obesity in his congregation, Michael Minor, a Black pastor in Mississippi, has banned sugary drinks and fried foods at church events, writes BlackWorld.Net.  Minor has seen many health improvements among his church family since he implemented these healthy eating rules in 2008. His work even gained attention from First Lady Michelle Obama.
