The purpose of our website is to give people virtual access to real experiences. Real experiences are the essence of The Suppers Programs.
The Suppers Programs, a 501(c)3, is a free-to-users support network for people who want more vibrant health but who are having a difficult time making the transition without support.
The program's four core principles are the active practice of non-judgment, whole food preparation, restoration of family tables and the strict adherence to no commercial messages. The feel of our website should reflect these values.
Our motto is "Cook, Taste and FEEL Your Way to Vibrant Health."
Visitors to this site will be: people who are considering joining this program; current members who are looking for our literature, recipes or our calendar of meetings; facilitators looking for literature or recipes; mental health professionals and physicians hoping to learn about the program; community partners/sponsors hoping to learn about the program; businesses and individuals considering making a contribution to the program; human resources professionals thinking about bringing the program into their workplaces; and people using keywords to search, for example “nutrition and alcoholism,” “nutrition and diabetes,” “cooking classes and diabetes,” etc.
Here is preliminary copy for our site's future home page (to provide you with a greater understanding of the program):
"Welcome! This is your virtual portal to real experience in the Suppers Programs. Our destination: your logical miracle.
A logical miracle is a natural outcome that you can expect when your needs are met for nourishing food, social support, and a safe place to experiment and self-observe while you change unhealthy habits. Suppers provides learn-by-doing programs for people who want more vibrant health. We run meetings in central NJ where people cook together, eat together, learn together and taste and feel their way to vibrant health using whole food. There are vegan, vegetarian and omnivore meetings.
Our starting assumption is that if you eat in a way that normalizes blood sugar and mood chemistry, you will also resolve most other diet-related health challenges. Logical miracles happen every day when people trust that how you feel is DATA! In other words, by working this free-to-users program (you just share the cost of making the meal), you can prevent, manage, and/or reverse diet-driven problems like depression, anxiety, learning issues, obesity, diabetes and problems with alcohol.
Let Suppers help you dispel your myths that healthy eating is expensive, too time-consuming and depriving. You’ll find out how when join us for Suppers."
