Programs offered by PlantPure Communities,
a nonprofit organization working to empower individuals to build healthy, kind, and sustainable communities
The mission of PlantPure Communities is to empower individuals to build healthy, kind, 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.
