The university and Bob’s Red Mill launched a “Nutrition Matters” initiative this fall that will educate George Fox students on the importance of making healthy choices.

A generous grant from Bob and Charlee Moore, founders of Bob’s Red Mill, will be given over four years and will fund improvements to the university’s Lifelong Fitness course, taken by all freshmen; promotion of nutrition awareness in the school’s cafeteria; and the creation of a science-based nutrition curriculum for students in the university’s health profession majors.

“It is our goal to be – and to be known as – the premier university for health in the U.S., both in terms of the academic preparation of healthcare professionals and in outcomes of good health for our students,” George Fox President Robin Baker said. “This grant allows us to develop a multi-faceted approach to inform the entire campus community on the benefits of good nutrition.”
