Food for Life
The Physicians Committee’s Online Food for Life Training Course will equip you to deliver the award-winning Food for Life nutrition and cooking classes that were designed by physicians, nurses, and dietitians. Food for Life is the Physicians Committee’s longest-standing nutrition program and has been providing individuals with the knowledge and tools for plant-based eating for 22 years.
The training is also intended for institutions with a nutrition or health focus looking for an established and evidence-based plant-based nutrition education program to offer their customers or employees.
An 8-week self-paced online course, the course will equip trainees to deliver the Food for Life classes in-person and online to their communities. Content is provided on-demand, with weekly required live Zoom sessions and additional optional sessions for networking and office hours. The Physicians Committee team and experienced Food for Life instructors provide guidance and support throughout the training program and beyond.

[This] training is so awesome! I would spend all my time studying if I could. The material and videos are great, I can’t get enough. Thank you to the team at the Physicians Committee and Food for Life for giving me this opportunity to help my community and others. I love the show and tell approach to Food for Life.
