"Our goal is to translate scientific findings into simple, practical steps you can use in your own kitchen, at the grocery store, at restaurants— anywhere you’re thinking about what to eat."

Dr. Neal Barnard

Physicians Committee

Designed by physicians, nutrition experts, and registered dieticians, each class includes specific information about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote or discourage disease, along with cooking demonstrations of delicious, healthful recipes that can be recreated at home. 

You will learn powerful nutrition and cooking tips with this research-based program developed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's (PCRM's) team of physicians, nurses, and dieticians.

Since 2001, PCRM has delivered its innovative, hands-on Food for Life program to communities around the world.  These classes, proven to help people prevent and survive chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, also focus on weight management, employee wellness, and children's health.
