Co-founders Kath Gallant and Tracey Miller have taught together in many forums including the series of classes, Nourishing Wellness, an integrated approach to nourishing yourself through yoga dancing, and community to change habits. They also taught a five week course on Ethical Eating and a cooking and wellness class at the Exeter High School for food service directors on how to use more fresh herbs in their menu.
They launched the Food and Health Forum in October 2011 because they share a passion for empowering people through food and consciousness. Their goal is strengthen a diverse community that understands and cares about what they eat, where it comes from and how it affects their health. The Food and Health Forum offers cooking classes, dinner seminars, free cookbooks,online wellness challenges and conferences.
