Nutrition and well- being are subjects that can never receive enough emphasis. But in spite of the efforts of non- profit organizations, government agencies, dieticians, and others, people are still consuming far too much processed and otherwise unhealthy food. One organization out to change the way we eat is Field to Plate, a company that aims for more sustainable farming, healthier eating, and a cleaner, happier planet. Let’s take a look:
Food Education for All
Founded by Amanda Archibald, Field to Plate focuses its food education on topics such as:
Science, Nutrition, Health, and the Kitchen– This forms the cornerstone of Field to Plate. The organization promotes nutrition science and works to spread this knowledge into kitchens across the land.
Personalized Nutrition, Culinary Guidance– Field to Plate sponsors retreats and training sessions related to food education. It trains professionals and others in the science of nutrition and the creation of individualized menu plans to nourish and heal.
Continuing Education– Field to Plate wants food education to become part of the national dialogue. The organization wants everyone to continually seek out food and nutrition information and it wants to create educational tools that are simple and easy to understand by all.
Sustainability and Food Justice– Everyone deserves access to quality food. Field to Plate works with farmers, educators, food professionals, and others to create food sustainability and ensure that everyone can get the food they need, when they need it.
Food Choice– Field to Plate strives to make information readily available about the food we choose and the long- term consequences of the choices we make.
Education is Key
Field to Plate is all about nutrition and food education and its philosophy is simple. The service is all about sound nutrition, sustainability, and environmental awareness. Field to Plate wants individuals to learn more about the foods and beverages they put into their bodies. The organization wants people to make better eating choices. It also wants to teach sustainable practices so that plentiful quantities of food are grown year after year, ensuring that food is available to all.
Field to Plate focuses its efforts on training, workshops, and educational seminars. Starting very soon, in 2014, Field to Plate plans to offer online courses. This is great for those who want to take part in nutritional and wellness seminars, but have limited access to them or few available hours. With the online courses, individuals can get educated on food education and healthy living without leaving the comforts of home.
You are What You Eat
Eating should be enjoyable as well as healthful. Field to Plate wants to educate Americans on food throughout its entire cycle, from the seed to the germination through the harvest and to your kitchen table.
