The Foundation in Action
Pushing the Plant Based Message Out of the Bubble
Our vision is to partner with other nonprofits and community-based organizations across the United States and offer our programming free of cost.
That’s right, we hope to offer most of our programming free of cost to interested partner organizations such as educator groups, public health workers, first responders, students, health workers, and other such groups. Our vision is to target community influencers, which will allow us to spread the message far and wide.
Our lively, engaging, and fun experiential programming will focus on:
Preliminary Target Group:
1. Healthcare Practitioners of All Levels
Nurses, aides, physician assistants, dietitians, public health workers, dentists, doctors, medical field students.
2. Educators and Students
Teachers, education assistants, professors, instructors, students of all ages.
3. Front-Line Public Servants
First responders, fire fighters, police officers, and other public servants.
4. Community Hubs
YMCAs, community centers, health clinics, community health programs, religious organizations.
VIRTUAL SESSIONS: 1-4 SPEAKERS (DURING PANDEMIC)
Basic 1-4 presenters; 1 -4 hour virtual presentation or series. Can involve food demonstrations.
Great way to kickstart interest and to support non-profit groups in their work, especially during the pandemic.
SINGLE SESSION: 1-2 SPEAKERS (INTRO)
Basic 1-2 presenters; 1.5 -3 hour presentation. Option can involve food demonstrations.
Great way to kickstart interest and to support other non-profit groups in their work.
ONE DAY (GOOD START)
Full day of activities: multi-speaker presentations, cooking demos, hands-on activities, collaborative group work, meals, discussion of psychology of habit change, and human-centered design collaborations.
Great way to really dive in head, heart, and hands!
MULTI-SESSION (MOST POPULAR)
A series of 1-2 hour presentations stretched over a 6-8 week period (one presentation a week); will include sessions on: research-based and peer reviewed nutritional practices for optimal health, lifestyle-related disease prevention, understanding one’s own health and bio-markers, whole food, plant-based cooking, meal planning, and shopping, healthy eating in the fast-paced, modern world, general guidelines for living a healthy and active life that prevents chronic disease, and the psychology of habit change.
Perfect for a workplace-style “learning lunch series” or “wellness” initiatives.
Follow up programming/coaching.
JUMP START/MULTI-SESSION EXPERIENCE (BEST PRACTICE)
Partner with a community or organization
Participants begin a 5-7 day “immersion” in which they attend a launch day and a final day, both involving biomarker testing. On the days in between, a handful of evening sessions will be held: cooking demos, shopping demos, talks, sharing sessions, etc. Participants will be responsible for their own cooking at home, though we will augment food options. Will include sessions such as: research-based and peer reviewed nutritional practices for optimal health, lifestyle-related disease prevention, understanding one’s own health and bio-markers, whole food, plant-based cooking, meal planning, and shopping, healthy eating in the fast-paced, modern world, general guidelines for living a healthy and active life that prevents chronic disease, and the psychology of habit change.
