Foundation Seeks To Saturate East End With Wellness

Jan 22, 2013 5:18 PM

Already, a new item has been popping up on several East End restaurant menus—the green-and-white “W” Wellness Foundation logo. The letter denotes foods that meet the challenge’s strict standards.

The foundation also reaches out to local elementary schools through its “Healthy Foods for Life” program, which encourages children to eat better and be the ones to “turn the tide for an entire generation” by getting them involved in the food-making process and using peer pressure to nudge kids
toward healthier fare.

This year for the first time the foundation asked schools if they would partner by covering the cost of food for this program. She said all the participating schools, mostly those in East Hampton, agreed to do so. Sag Harbor Elementary School is expected to start the program in the spring.

And what began locally just three years ago is now spreading. One goal of the foundation is to establish a “wellness zone” covering all of East Hampton and Southampton towns, saturating the South Fork with so much education and wellness food, programs, and recipes that wellness will become the new normal.

“The body is an amazing thing,” Ms. Taylor said. “It’s designed to be healthy and in harmony. When you feed it what it needs, it’s absolutely stunning how well you can feel and how optimally your body can function.”
