Jumpstart the Health of Your Community

Learn about the three different plant-based jumpstart models that are being used to improve health outcomes and change lives, and learn how you can create your own jumpstart program. In this workshop, you’ll gain tools that will help you assess and tackle the unique health challenges of your community.
Food as medicine has a stellar track record, so why is this concept not at the heart of modern medicine? Learn the answer to this question, and so much more, from those who are providing health care professionals with the information and tools they need to integrate plant-based nutrition into their practices and the community.
Learn how you can make a difference in your region, city, or home. Hear how a worker-owned cooperative provides marginalized individuals with meaningful work in a plant-based business, how a pastor brings people together to address the food system’s environmental impact, and how a food pantry is increasing the consumption of plant-based foods by the seniors it serves. You will be inspired by their stories and come away with numerous how-to’s.
