Being diagnosed with cancer brings unique nutritional challenges. It is a time in life where there is a tremendous need for nourishment yet people often have a reduced capacity to provide healthy foods for themselves and their family. Wendy Borden, through her Revive & Thrive Project non-profit, is helping to change this.
Hawthorn University All About Alumni Graduate Webinar Series welcomes graduate Wendy Borden (MSHN 2014) for her presentation of Healing Meals: Nourishing the Community One Meal at a Time.
The Revive & Thrive Project is a non-profit that provides free meals to those with life-threatening illness such as cancer, simultaneously teaches teens valuable cooking and life skills, and promotes a vibrant local food system. Wendy will discuss starting a non-profit, the impact of the Revive & Thrive Project, and being an advocate for holistic nutrition.
Wendy Borden is committed to promoting health through nutrition. Wendy received her M.S. in Holistic Nutrition from Hawthorn University. In 2014 she founded the Revive and Thrive Project, a nonprofit in Grand Rapids Michigan and an affiliate partner of the Ceres Community Project. Wendy and is an advocate for holistic nutrition in a large medical community and is hopeful that we can create a culture of community where wholesome foods are not controversial, complicated or confusing, but where healthy eating is valued, supported and available to all.
