Dorothy Mullen - The Suppers Programs
Dorothy is the Founder of the Suppers Programs and a leader in the community gardening movement in central New Jersey. Suppers is a network of nearly free-to-users programs for people who are willing to make diet and lifestyle changes to achieve more vibrant health. The Program design reflects her combining of addictions models learned in a Masters in Counseling program at The College of New Jersey, her background in garden-based education, her passion for preparing delicious food, and her respect for the wisdom and longevity of the 12-step process. The program has no biases in favor of a particular diet; rather, it simply removes all processed foods from the menu and make delicious meals with everything else-real food! She is the author of Logical Miracles, a collection of stories by, with and for members of the Suppers Programs who have turned around serious health problems with food.
About the Suppers Programs
People who effortlessly sustain healthy change in their lives without help probably don't need us. For everyone else, there is the Suppers Programs. Suppers is a network of support groups -- mostly in New Jersey -- where people gather in each others' homes to cook together, eat together, run food experiments, and help each other sort out personal best practices and pathways to a healthier life. It's a program, not a social club.
What you will see at a Suppers program is people having a great time! They come into our home kitchens and small public venues to strengthen their ability to "live according to their intentions instead of their impulses".
If you're in New Jersey, come to a meeting. The food is outrageously delicious and we'll teach you how to prepare it. If you're not in NJ, just let us know you're interested! We have lots of good resources for you on our web site, even if we don't have meetings in your area yet. And if you think starting a community of intention to live in a healthier way is a good idea, you can read Where There are No Suppers.
