6D Living is excited to share with you a unique opportunity to become active in your community. The T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies is now offering grants for community outreach and development programs! It is time to roll up our sleeves and get to work - and CNS is ready to support you and your idea.
"The T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies (CNS) is committed to increasing awareness of the extraordinary impact that food has on the health of our bodies, our communities, and our planet. In support of this commitment, CNS is creating a Community Leads service initiative to empower sustainable food-based initiatives around the world. We'll do this by providing grants to enable innovative start-ups and to propel the growth of existing initiatives." - Community Leads page on CNS website
“Our goal is to support plant-based initiatives around the world, including both innovative start-ups and existing initiatives seeking to expand. We are focusing on three main areas: community education and food literacy, access to healthy, affordable food, and sustainable and equitable food systems. And it’s imperative that we do this now! Diet-related chronic diseases are at an all-time high and we are facing tremendous ecological destruction due to a corporate-based, livestock-centered food system. The first step in this process is to recognize the regenerative, resilient power of food. A whole food, plant-based (WFPB) diet has already been shown to help heal our bodies; sustainable, equitable food systems can also heal our ecosystems. In other words, changing the way we produce and consume food will transform the world … So join us! Share this opportunity with as many people as possible. As we see it, this is how health functions in the body—as a collaboration—and there is no reason that these same principles cannot be applied to the health of our communities.” – LeAnne Campbell, PhD; President of the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies
