Our program focuses on children and impoverished families, the homeless, immigrants, and other vulnerable individuals. Our objective is to provide healthful nutrition for the most deprived and vulnerable populations and educate them about a healthful, basic, practical and economical diet as the best for prevention and reversal of chronic degenerative diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity, dementia, and diabetes among others.
We teach the cultivation of plant foods for the creation of communal organic gardens grown on the basics of regenerative agriculture for the benefit of the local population.
We also educate communities about waste and its effects on the toxicity of the global environment, and the damaging effects of animal agriculture and animal foods in human and planetary health, planetary degeneration, including global warming, demineralization of soils, and the production of greenhouse gases.
WFPB.ORG is an independent, nonpartisan, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that empowers sustainable health for humans and planet through a plant-based lifestyle.
