Short description: The all new Feed The D. Planning on purchasing land in Detroit for around $1,000 and applying for 501c3 for $600. We are going to grow food for Salvation Army and Forgtten Harvest, teach others all about RAW organic superfoods, and nutrition for disease prevention.
Who We Are
Feed The D Inc is an LLC “soon to be non-profit with your help” dedicated to teaching about nutritious superfoods, holistic approaches to illness, urban farming, and charity to feed the less fortunate in and around the city of Detroit through the amazing services that Salvation Army and Forgotten Harvest offer.
Our main goal at Feed The D is to acquire plots of land in Detroit and grow fresh organic superfoods that are some of the best nutrient packed foods in the world. Being able to grow the highest nutrient packed foods gives everyone the advantage of living happy healthy lives at an affordable if not free price. This will give us the great opportunity of helping the less fortunate greatly improve the quality of their lives.
Imagine fresh or freeze dried and sun dried superfood care packages that are donated to Salvation army and put in their trucks the next day directly feeding the homeless. These foods would include wheat, leafy greens such as kale and spinach, fruits such as Goji Berries, and Blueberries, Herbs such as Nettle and many more…. “YES TOMATOES TOO” The homeless tend to get highly processed bread, milk, and some soup lacking nutrition. Imagine giving them nutrient packed foods that won’t only taste good but will also help give them high amounts of nutrients. Studies prove that nutrient deficient people have depression, anxiety, and lack of well being. Our approach to giving them superfoods to give their body the nutrition it desperately needs could help improve their mood and help give them more hope to living a better tomorrow.
To do this in a sustainable manor we will have to grow and sell some food at the eastern market. This is so we can afford to donate parts of our produce to Salvation Army, Forgotten Harvest and to compensate our directors for their efforts.
Please help us raise enough money for these two goals listed below. We want to be a legal non-profit and to start growing for the Detroit community immediately!
Two Days Two Goals: Maximum Yield Expo
Day 1: Raise $600 to purchase 501(c)3 to become a legal non-profit and get on charitynavigator.com
Day 2: Raise anything past our $600 goal to purchase plots of land in detroit to start growing food!!
As some of you already know, I Brandon Lawes the founder of Feed The D have suffered from Lyme Disease my entire life. I struggled for years and even had to drop out of school because of it. I have came accross high nutrition and a holistic approach to my illness. After only 3 months of treating myself I have been able to reverse chronic fatigue and sleeping disorders caused by Lyme. I am not cured yet but I am physically capable of living a healthy life now. I am going to be attending college for nutrition and health coaching within the year of 2013. As I learn every day I am able to put my knowledge to use to benefit others. I will be holding workshops and teaching the local community about superfoods and the best diet based on their specific needs. We like to call this Bio-Individuality. Every human body is different and needs a different approach to things. Not everyone will do good on the same diet even if its all superfoods. For me with Lyme disease I have had to remove all sources of sugar from my diet for a 6-12 month period which I am still doing as of 4-25-2013. Yep no fruits! only leafy green vegetables, turkey, high doses of vitamins and herbal remedies based on my specific needs.
Why super foods?
Bread and milk lack the key ingredients to a healthy body. Example: As the Author of the book Self Health Michael Zenn would say: Wonder bread it sounds great and was when grandma use to make it years ago but now… we “wonder” what’s really even in it anymore. We can change that by growing our own wheat and ensuring our bread is full of nutrients.
Goji Berries – Goji berries are grown on vines in the protected valleys of inner Mongolia and Tibet. These distinctively flavoured red berries are a very rich source of vitamin C, having 500 times more vitamin C per ounce than oranges and actually more than any other fruit. They are a superb source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E and contain a full complement of protein with 18 amino acids and 21 trace minerals. Most of all they are an excellent antioxidant making it an ideal natural whole food for reversing aging and protecting against disease.
Greens are good, Green Superfoods are even better! Green superfoods have the highest concentrations of easily digestible nutrients, fat burning compounds, vitamins and minerals to protect and heal the body. They contain a wide array of beneficial substances including proteins, protective photo-chemicals and healthy bacteria helping you to build cleaner muscles and tissues, aid your digestive system function and more effectively protect you against disease and illness.
Green leafy vegetables are so readily available and so highly nutritious, however most people do not eat enough of them. Studies continuously confirm that populations that eat a diet high in green leafy vegetables run a far lower risk of heart disease and cancer. Fresh raw green leafy vegetables contain high doses of chlorophyll, easily digestible proteins, enzymes and a wide range of vitamins and minerals. These particular vegetables act as mini-transfusions for the blood, a health tonic for the brain and immune system and a cleanser of the kidneys. See for yourself! Try any of the following: rocket, spinach, dandelion greens, kale, watercress, parsley, lettuce, endive, chicory, broccoli sprouts and mustard sprouts.
Wheat grass – Wheat grass is the sprouted grass of a wheat seed. Unlike the whole grain, because it has been sprouted, it no longer contains gluten or other common allergic agents. Wheat grass is super alkalizing and is excellent for promoting healthy blood. It normalizes the thyroid gland to stimulate metabolism thus assisting digestion and promoting weight loss due also to its high enzyme content and cleansing effect.
