ABOUT SEEDS TO INSPIRE FOUNDATION

Our Mission
As part of a global social justice education movement, Seeds to Inspire Foundation works to achieve health equity and foster cultural healing in historically marginalized communities through the Pillars of Lifestyle Medicine and a Trauma-Informed lens.

 

Our Vision
Anchor institutions and organizations working collaboratively to cultivate healthy, mutually beneficial networks of health and wellness from within communities.

 

By collaborating with anchor institutions and organizations focused on healing within our communities we will restore the village for the children, guided by thriving and active elder wisdom. We believe that by working as one tribe...sharing resources toward Collective Goals...we can make profound shifts within the consciousness of our communities that will affect generations to come by focusing on:

  • Food As Medicine

  • Health Autonomy

  • Trauma-Informed Healing

Our Philosophy

  • Uniquely, we meet you where you are and celebrate you!

  • Your body has the power to treat, prevent and even reverse chronic disease with the right tools to honor your health. This is the premise of Lifestyle Medicine.

  • Be well more often at home with the people you love. 

  • Enjoy a team-based approach to reach your personal health goals with a Chef, Physician and Coach.

The Growth of Seeds to Inspire Foundation

2016 — Jacque's healing journey led her to Forks over Knives and her own experimentation with a whole plant food diet (leading to an eventual 164-pound weight loss, the reversal of a Type II diabetes diagnosis, and more. See more about Jacque here.)

2018 — Seeds to Inspire Foundation emerges officially as a 501c(3) nonprofit as Jacque begins to realize the potential for her own healing journey to affect her community's level of health equity. Over the next few years, Seeds to Inspire organizes and participates in community and online events — distributing Bags of Kindness with health-promoting food for families in need, free-to-all documentary screenings, panel discussions, Food For Life classes, and more.

Today and beyond — Through Seeds to Inspire Foundation, Jacque continues to promote health equity in underserved communities by sharing her healing journey as a Keynote Speaker, working with groups and 1-on-1 as a health coach, and through programs like Seva Jumpstart that allow participants to witness their body's own healing power when fed delicious and immune-boosting plant-based food. 

2020 — With a start-up grant from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, Seeds to Inspire Foundation launches the first round of Seva Jumpstart, a program with 10 days of culinary medicine for those in underserved communities to experiment, like Jacque, with their body's ability to heal.
