The mission of PlantPure Communities is to build stronger, healthier, and more sustainable communities. This is being accomplished through a wide range of research, policy, and program activities and working with local nonprofits, businesses, governments, hospitals and other health-related organizations, faith-based groups, and other community organizations.
Our Focus: PPC offers programs, resources, tools, and knowledge to empower community leaders, activists, and advocates, in order to help educate people about evidence-based nutrition that shows that optimal health may be achieved through a whole food, plant-based (WFPB) diet. In recognition of the enormous confusion surrounding nutrition that has resulted in skyrocketing food-borne chronic disease and the challenges that many people face in making long-term changes to their diet, especially in low-income and other underserved neighborhoods, PPC works to:
- Increase access to and understanding of the clear scientific basis that a WFPB diet is optimal for humans;
- Meet people wherever they are on their health journey;
- Encourage all people to eat whole plant-based foods and reduce or eliminate their consumption of animal-based products, including meat, dairy, fish, and eggs, and also reduce or avoid processed food, such as sugar and oil; and
- Institutionalize long-term neighborhood-based support of WFPB nutrition.
