Proceeds from The Wellness Project will go to funding Clean Your Plate's Edible Rx program. At Clean Your Plate, we believe in the practical implementation of lifestyle and culinary medicine in real communities, for real people. The pandemic has shed light on health disparities in our own community.
Thus, we have expanded our intervention outside of just culinary gardens designed to supplement fresh produce for food insecure patients. Edible Rx works similarly to a vegetable prescription program where we additionally host monthly culinary medicine workshops and teach the Student Athletes and their families the science of eating well. Edible Rx hopes to ensure health literacy and healthy eating habits for generations to come.
The 2021 Edible Rx program spotlight organization is Costal Outreach Soccer of Glynn County, GA.
