PlantPure Nation Launches its First Faith-Based Pod and Jumpstart in Chicago

by PlantPure Team September 09, 2015

 

 

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon in August we screened our film at Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side of Chicago. We could hardly believe the size of the crowd. Over 1,500 people came and they were so enthused during and after the screening. This was one of the most uplifting experiences yet of our film release.

But it did not end there. The following week, the church held a Jumpstart information session. Over 500 people showed up to learn about our 10-day, plant-based immersion program.

Pastor Otis Moss and First Lady Monica Moss lead the church, and we are so impressed by their leadership. Not only are they meeting the spiritual, social and other needs of their community, but they also have launched several impressive “green” initiatives and have fully embraced the message of plant-based nutrition.

We also spent time with Dr. Terry Mason, who is a member of the congregation and major figure in the public health community of Chicago. Many of you may remember Terry when he was featured in Forks Over Knives (the urologist talking about cardiovascular disease). He will be working closely with Monica as they help bring the message of plant-based nutrition to the Trinity community.

We believe Trinity will end up serving as a shining example for other faith institutions across the country to follow. We also will work with them to develop, implement and validate our PlantPure Oasis program in the South Side community.

Last Friday night we launched the new version of our PlantPure Entrees on Amazon, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  We are humbled by some of the great reviews, and are also taking note of the suggestions people have provided.  
One thing we noticed was a trend of some of our meals being delivered with seals that were not fully intact.

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense. Most distressing in my view, however, are not the actual problems we face, but our inability to work together to find their solutions.
