Community Wellness Programs
Ellen Petrosino X Nourish and Thrive

In 2022, my RDN colleague Elisa England and I founded the Nourish and Thrive Nutrition Center, located in Warren, NJ. We offer community and corporate wellness programming built around a balanced blend of nutrition education integrated with culinary demonstrations featuring delicious, plant-focused recipes.  

These two elements, in combination, help participants not only to connect with why they may benefit from a change, but also build their confidence in how to create a change. Together, we translate the information presented in the first part of the program, into foods to add to their shopping cart, and meals and snacks to put on their plates. Evaluation of goals and objectives is integrated into every program to measurably demonstrate gains.


Programming may include a choice of an established program (listed below), or customized content to suit your organizational needs. 

Prices available upon request.
