Welcome to our Processed-Free America Community!

Processed-Free America (PFA aka the Center for Processed-Free Living) is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating childhood and adult obesity through nutrition education to both young and old, teaching the health effects of processed foods and the healing properties of whole foods.

What We Do:

We Teach Kids Healthy Eating

Since 2007, Processed-Free America has been teaching children how to eat more healthfully at Boys and Girls Clubs across Arizona, Texas, and Colorado. Each session integrates nutrition activities, hands-on food preparation, and of course eating!  The objective of the series is to acquaint students with the fundamentals of preparing foods, kitchen safety and hygiene, the taste, aesthetics, and nutritive value of plant-based whole foods.  Each student keeps a journal in which he or she records vocabulary words, nutritional information, observations, and recipes. For an information sheet about of our 4-week program, click here.

We Teach You How to Teach This Program

We have 14 hours of DVD instruction and 7 additional hours of online instruction that teaches you how to teach both children and adults how to eat more healthfully and processed-free.  There are several options for participating in the program and being a Certified Processed-Free™ Facilitator.
