For about 2.5 years, I’ve been on the board of Child and Family Resources.
CFR is a social service agency that works all across Arizona. Here’s their website– http://www.childfamilyresources.org. They make a big difference in people’s lives already, so I think they can be a force implementing good nutrition. They devised an internal Wellness Initiative for their staff, but got a bit distracted actually implementing it. With some urging from me and creative ideas by their CEO, Dr. Eric Schindler, CFR started the Initiative a couple of months after I gave a version of the Inner Animal talk at the CFR state-wide all staff meeting in January 2013. One of Eric’s ideas was to devote proceeds from the Gabe Z Triple Crown to the Initiative, which provided key funding. Another of Eric’s ideas was that I should write a series of articles. Those articles contributed to my decision to create this site. I’ve used pieces of the articles in several spots.
Last week, I got an invitation from the Wellness Initiative team to attend part of the all staff meeting on Friday, Jan. 17, 2014. I was given a very nice Thank You card from the Phoenix office, plus a gift certificate to In & Out Burger, an excellent source of tasty low-carb food if you make the correct choices (beef, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes…). I was quite touched. I asked CFR staff to help me with this website. I hope I’ll get some good suggestions.
Here’s the nice Thank You card. Thank you CFR!
