Created by naturopaths and nutritionists, The Food as Medicine Institute (FAMI) grew out of the success of the Ending Childhood Obesity (ECO) Project, a community-based nutrition education and cooking program offered in low-income areas in Portland, OR.

The FAMI goal is to motivate and support communities to adopt a more whole-foods based diet by educating and providing the tools to overcome the many obstacles to eating healthy in today’s society.

The FAME program is founded on the idea that it takes three months (12-weeks) to empower individuals, families, and communities to make lasting and sustainable dietary changes.
