Healthy Hearts Plus 2

Healthy Hearts Plus II exists to utilize the power of education to empower and enlighten ​urban communities about nutritional health values leading to a positive lifestyle change.

Nutritional Education that Supports a Holistic Dietary Lifestyle

Healthy Hearts Plus II is a nonprofit community based organization located in Richmond, VA. HHP II was founded in 1999 springing from Healthy Heart Plus LLC., a private nutritional consultation service.  While practicing in the private industry as a Certified Nutritional Consultant, founder and executive director, Alice Freeman recognized the lack of resources, access to fresh foods, and nutritional training for the economically disadvantaged communities. HHP II grew out of a need to provide life enhancing nutritional education and services to communities who are nutritionally destitute as a result of social, economic and environmental disparities. Through our “Eat Right for Life” program, we provide nutritional education that supports a holistic dietary lifestyle via a series of seminars, workshops, interactive demonstrations, and weekly radio shows.
