The Vitamix Foundation was created with a vision to enhance health and wellness through plant-based whole foods and aspires for a nation where diet-driven illness does not exist. To create a healthier future, the Vitamix Foundation focuses its grant making on the crucial window of opportunity from preconception to the first 2,000 days of life, which includes:
- Addressing the unique nutritional needs during preconception, pregnancy and lactation, and furthering the knowledge about how those needs impact the lifelong health of the mother, baby and future generations.
- Supporting innovative programs that promote and establish healthy eating habits during the child’s first 2,000 days of life.
- Advancing evidence-based research to educate and close the knowledge gap on the benefits of a plant-based whole food dietary pattern in the prevention and reversal of chronic diseases.
