Certificate Program Update 2021

Due to the pandemic, the Whole Food Plant Based Culinary Nutrition Certificate program is currently on hold. We will do our best to start the program again when we are again able to hold in-person classes.
In the meantime, a similar course is being held online through our Community Education department. You can view the upcoming Summer class here.
