Nextcourse improves the health of individuals and communities by designing innovative and collaborative educational programs that inspire people to purchase cook and eat healthier locally produced foods.
In the past 100 years, the American food system has changed. Generations before us ate fresh, nutrient rich foods, grown and produced right near their homes. Today, we eat more refined and processed foods which tend to give us a lot of calories and additives, but fewer of the nutrients we need to keep our bodies and minds healthy. Accompanying this change has been an increased flurry of nutrition messaging, which, ironically, has done little to stem the drastic increase in diet-related illnesses.
Nextcourse strives to cut through all the confusing messaging, and reintroduces a diet that we've simply lost track of over time, a diet of whole foods — locally produced and minimally processed. A diet that's good for people and the planet. We want to create communities where eating such healthy food is not a privilege or a chore. It's simply what you do, because this food is familiar, available, and delicious.
