Description

The Suppers Program, NOFA-NJ, and Gravity Hill Farm present a series of workshops on food and nutrition, including a hands-on cooking demo, to help our communities develop a better understanding of their bodies’ relationship with food, and expand the ways in which we can prepare the foods we get from our gardens and organic farms. 

We know how to grow or buy nutritious, organic produce – but do we know how to prepare it to provide delicious meals and proper nutrition for ourselves and our loved ones?
We know that organic practices are good for the earth – but do we know why they’re important for our bodies, too?

This workshop does not prescribe food choices; rather, it supports experimentation to identify which foods are most supportive to the individual. Visit the Suppers Program website to read this story about one Suppers member's experience with diabetes. Dor Mullen is the Founder of The Suppers Programs and a facilitator of numerous meetings. The Suppers program design reflects her combining of counseling models learned in a Masters in Counseling program at The College of New Jersey, her background in garden-based education, her passion for preparing delicious food, and her respect for the wisdom and longevity of the 12-step process. Dor's meetings and workshops support individuals with a wide range of needs, especially diabetes and pre-diabetes. Prior to Suppers, Dorothy was the president of the board of the Foundation for the Advancement of Innovative Medicine in New York and a holistic health care practitioner in Princeton.
