One Person Who Made a Difference

In 2009, Provender Alliance established a scholarship program to honor the life and work of former board member Craig Winters.  Craig’s life mission was “to increase global knowledge about the role of diet and nutrition have on personal and planetary health.”  He worked tirelessly toward that goal.  In 1992, Provender awarded him the “One Person Can Make a Difference” award.

Craig was an amazing advocate, serving as Executive Director of The Campaign to Label Genetically Engineered Foods and was founding president of Citizens for Health.  He also served on the board of directors on the National Nutritional Foods Association and was an instructor at Bastyr University in Seattle from 1996 to 1999 where he taught a course called “Nutrition in the Natural Products Industry.”

Upon his death in 2009, this annual educational conference scholarship was created to give recognition to individuals who follow in his footsteps, making a difference in their communities through education and promotion of healthy choices for both our bodies and our planet.

This scholarship honors an individual who is:
• Actively involved in their community
• Educating and inspiring that community by expanding that community’s knowledge and positive engagement with healthy food systems and social justice.

This award benefits the entire Provender Alliance.  It provides funds for the recipient to attend a Provender Alliance Educational Conference, where the recipient not only gains access to educational opportunities, but also shares their knowledge and experience with the rest of the Provender Alliance community.

Hearing and seeing how one person makes a difference inspires and empowers us all.

Here’s the application.
