C2Life Foundation, is a non-profit organization, working to end hunger & eliminating chronic disease caused by poor nutrition.
At C2Life Foundation, we believe health starts at the end of our fork. That's why our mission is to end hunger & eliminate chronic disease caused by poor nutrition.
Since our launch in 2020, we’ve coordinated the distribution of over 85,000 nutritious meals to more than 25 non-profit organizations throughout western NC. Additionally, during the onset of COVID, we donated the use of commercial food packaging equipment to the Burke County Public Schools to assist in providing healthy meals to local students.
At the height of a global pandemic we could not deny that personal health was paramount & we wanted to affect change through education, nutrition, & community support. In the fall of 2021, we launched the C2Life Foundation Food is Medicine-Community program. This 9-week, lifestyle medicine program encompasses daily education, plant-based nutrition, coaching & group support to those who are chronically ill. Participants learn how lifestyle changes can help prevent, reduce & even reverse risk factors for heart disease, type II diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's, obesity & more. Over 70 people have enrolled in the program & have successfully incorporated & sustained healthy lifestyle behaviors so they can live longer AND better!
If you've been diagnosed with a chronic disease & are ready to make lifestyle changes then we invite you to join us at one of our upcoming information sessions.
Our Spring 2023 class will be hosted February 16 - April 20, 2023.
C2Life Foundation is operated 100% by volunteers who are committed to improving the health & wellness of our communities. Our work would not be possible without our volunteers & generous donors including Burke Primary Care, Catholic Charities,
Kellex Corporation, Rostan Family Foundation, & Unifour Foundation.

Kevin Baxter, Chair
Kevin was drawn to the C2Life Foundation by the commitment to seed healthier communities and those who call them home. He is particularly impressed by C2Life's innovative approach to creating an ecosystem that invests in the health and education of those who need it most; in other words, creating a sustainable solution to impact positive change.
Sheri Watts, Treasurer
As the result of my husband’s recent experience with cancer, my family and I have started paying more attention to what we are eating, attempting to eat a more natural, healthy diet. C2Life Foundation is built on that foundation so it was a natural fit for me. It also allows me to use my financial & accounting skills to help an organization that is providing so much good to our community.
Alice Horton, Vice-Chair/Secretary
I am a part of the C2Life mission because I believe that with the "right" food we can change lives. I believe that good healthy food should be a basic right and that plant-based food knowledge is necessary to change the trajectory of our current obesity epidemic that we currently face in this country.
