Mission

The mission of PlantPure Communities is to build stronger, healthier, and more sustainable communities. This is being accomplished through a wide range of research, policy, and program activities and working with local nonprofits, businesses, governments, hospitals and other health-related organizations, faith-based groups, and other community organizations.

Notes from the nonprofit

PlantPure Communities (PPC) was formed as an outgrowth of the 2015 film, PlantPure Nation, directed & written by Nelson Campbell, which documents the suppression of taxpayer-funded scientific nutritional research conducted by his father, T. Colin Campbell, PhD., as detailed in his best-selling book, The China Study. (Dr. Campbell is considered by many to be the “science father” of the rapidly growing plant-based nutrition movement.) PPC carries out a wide range of project, program and policy activities connected to our mission to empower individuals to build healthy, kind, and sustainable communities. This is being accomplished through a wide range of research, policy, and program activities and working with local nonprofits, businesses, governments, hospitals and other health-relate. Advocacy is an important part of PPC activities, and includes, but is not limited to the PPC Restaurant Campaign; the Nutrition-Climate Coalition, the Moving Medicine Forward Initiative, and more.

Oasis Program

The PlantPure Communities Oasis Program works with local coordinating groups to strengthen the local infrastructure in order to achieve short term impact and long-term change. Oasis brings whole food, plant-based meals, science-based nutrition education, and healthy lifestyle practices to underserved neighborhoods across the country. Under the Program, 11 Oasis Jumpstarts were completed in 2017-2018 and approximately 20 are slated for 2019/20. The Oasis Program offers participants the opportunity to learn about the benefits of a whole food, plant-based diet while enabling them to experience the powerful health impacts firsthand. PPC works with faith-based groups, food banks, businesses, government entities, health systems, clinics, Pods and local nonprofits to carry out neighborhood-wide Jumpstarts.

The PlantPure Nation film includes a call-to-action which inspired and continues to inspire tens of thousands of people to start or join “Pods” - which are locally based groups of volunteers who support each other and share evidence-based nutrition information. Connected via the PPC Pod Network, the Pods are the backbone of a global grassroots movement, led and supported by PPC, aimed at shifting people from the standard American diet to a healthier, and more environmentally-friendly whole food, plant-based (WFPB) lifestyle. PPC supports the Pod Network through a wide array of resources, including toolkits, a mentor program, webinars, leadership guidance, scholarships for plant-based nutrition education, and more.

PPC also offers virtual Toolkits for Pods to undertake targeted campaigns in their communities, focused on initiatives such as changing school lunch options, community gardening, organizing vegfests, and other related efforts. Pods choose the issue of greatest interest, and the toolkits provide the roadmap.
