WELCOME TO THE PLANTPURE COMMUNITIES CAMPAIGN TOOLKITS!
PlantPure Communities (PPC) developed these virtual Campaign Toolkits to support projects undertaken by the PlantPure Communities Pod Network and other advocates working to spread the health message of plant-based diets. The Toolkits offer Pods a menu of ‘campaign’ options to create positive change in neighborhoods and beyond that is meaningful to the people who participate in the Pod.
Each Toolkit offers a wide range of materials, forms, resources, instructions, ‘how-tos’, chronological steps, and more. Many are structured to allow the Group Leader to bring a Campaign idea to the Pod members for consideration, and some include suggested Pod meeting Agendas. The toolkits are each organized in a similar manner, with sections that include Action Sheets, Info Sheets, Templates, Reporting Forms, Multimedia Tools, FAQs, and Recommended Resources. The Toolkits can be used to discuss priorities and secure buy-in from Pod members to carry out short-term or longer-term projects.
The materials in the Toolkit have been crafted so that they may be downloaded and printed individually, such as the “WFPB Diet Explained,” which Group Leaders may want to bring to each Pod meeting and share with new members. The Toolkits also offer many opportunities for Group Leaders and Pod Members to provide feedback, so that PPC can keep the Toolkits current and so that the toolkits can be a vehicle to share best practices.
Check out the “More Toolkits to come” link on the main Toolkits webpage to see what is planned and to share your suggestions. If you have depth or experience connected to any of these topics that you would like to share, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know the details!
For new Group Leaders, we particularly recommend the Leadership Toolkit, which includes detailed suggestions on how to maintain and grow community member participation in a Pod.
For updates on what Pods are doing and how they are using the Toolkits, please be sure to regularly check out Pod News!
