ATLANTA, October 6, 2022 - The Educated Choices Program (ECP) has received a community grant from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies (CNS) to support its latest program initiative, offering its free educational services to Spanish-speaking communities across the globe.
ECP recently announced the launch of its Spanish outreach program which will allow this critical information to reach the nearly 500 million Spanish-speaking students and community members around the world. “The Environment and Modern Agriculture” one of ECP’s most popular presentations, is the first of several educational materials to be available in Spanish along with accompanying lesson plans, discussion topics, quizzes, and more resources to help viewers lead a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle. This grant from CNS will support the development of a second presentation "Healthful Eating" that examines the link between food choices and common chronic diseases.
ECP is one of several international organizations to receive a community grant from CNS, a renowned global leader in whole food, plant-based resources, education, and advocacy. CNS provides grant support to empower sustainable food-based initiatives to build a better world through education, access, and equity.
“We are incredibly excited to offer these Community Grants as a natural extension of our global mission,” commented LeAnne Campbell, President of CNS. “This grant program will provide organizations with support to advocate for a more sustainable and equitable food system, whether they are nonprofits, educators, community organizers, or environmentally conscious companies.”
"We are honored to receive this award from the Center for Nutrition Studies. To earn an acknowledgment from such a respected organization further supports the importance of food literacy education worldwide and its role in food system reform!” said ECP Chief Development and Partnerships Officer Karyn Knox.
