Dedicated to promoting healthy,
sustainable, & kind living.

Hey Friend Foundation is a collaborative organization. Our mission is to unite community leaders and other like-minded organizations to better serve communities in need and alleviate nutrition insecurity. Together we can facilitate interest and access to healthy, sustainable, and kind food options. Our programs provide educational outreach that supports whole food plant-based nutrition, food justice initiatives, and the prevention of cruelty to animals. The foundation’s programming, events, and animal sanctuary at The Hey Friend Foundation provide opportunities to give back and spotlight leading-edge advances in health, nutrition, and food systems. We must work to make good nutrition available to all. A healthy life doesn’t come at the expense of another’s.
