Community collaboration in food as medicine with contributing healthy lifestyle areas by coaching, presenting and sharing for wholeness.

P I N W H E E L The Art of Wellness Lifestyle.

Funding Goal



I am using the money to purchase healthy whole food, green cooking products and utilize rooms to rent at the community centers or possibly rent space to coach and present food as medicine in nutrition with other health oriented presentations. This includes printed material to inspire and educate (ex: my created healthy recipes, info on reading food labels). This will introduce and collaborate with home, image, fitness and companion topics in coaching and presentations to inspire change by mindful awareness to enhance these areas of an individuals life with other wellness presentations networked through the community. Further plans involve "re-localizing" plant base foods by purchasing seeds and plants for neighborhoods to be used as community gardens for sharing.

About Project

I am a Holistic, Registered Nurse & Integrative Health Coach (NC-BS). My focus is to promote healthy communities to relieve the community hospital overflow. I serve in my community hospital. Majority of my patients would be healthier if they understood to make better choices toward wellness. It is about the reality of health verses healthcare. I coach and present in my community about food as medicine to support individual health and wellness at all ages. My goal is to coach, present and encourage nutrition, including in schools, to evolve into home gardens as a co-op in the neighborhoods with food sharing.

Project Showcase Proposal

Presenting food as medicine and the relationship to optimal health. I will have whole food and food packaging displayed relating the ingredient labels to possible chronic disease such as diabetes and hypertension. Interactive with audience by demonstrating for example, health number values like blood pressure and blood sugar relating to healthy eating and clarity on food labels for better food choices. I will be taking blood pressures, oxygen saturation and heart rates and offering information for individual awareness.
