Food as Medicine Everyday (FAME) Series

The FAME series is a 3-month hands-on cooking and nutrition program.  Since its start our team has worked with individuals from all over the greater Portland metro area sharing the wisdom of a whole foods diet and presenting the FAME series guiding principles.  We have had a great time working with a wide-spectrum of participants with differing levels of nutrition knowledge knowing that by the end of the 3 months they will leave feeling more confident and with a greater understanding of health and nutrition.

Our goal is to motivate and support communities to adopt a more whole-foods based diet by educating and providing the tools to overcome the many obstacles to eating healthy in today’s society.

Our program is founded on the idea that it takes 3 months to empower individuals, families, and communities to make lasting and sustainable dietary changes. Within all of the communities we have worked we have seen impressive changes take place in the lives of our participants in just three months.

The FAME Series Guiding Principles:

  • Promote whole foods and low-processed foods.
  • Encourage a diverse, primarily plant-based diet.
  • Include food from healthy animals.
  • Promote anti-inflammatory food choices.
  • Recognize that individuals have unique food needs.
  • Care about food and its sources.
