Jodi Gruhn Director Wholesome Minnesota

Meet Jodi Gruhn

Wholesome Minnesota Coordinator |

Jodi is a natural networker and a fierce advocate for a plant-based lifestyle. Drawing on her strengths in marketing and communications, she partners with institutional leaders to be the change in their organizations. She’s a natural communicator who confidently expresses why it’s important to shift our consumption patterns, while discovering the unique needs of each partner and creating a customized approach. 

Jodi works diligently to reform the food system. She has been a volunteer on a variety of plant-based initiatives, like the Twin Cities Veg Fest and the Twin Cities Vegan Chef Challenge. A sampling of her food-related work includes: Minneapolis Public Schools plant-based school lunch pilot and their True Food program, vegan restaurant fig+farro’s climate change initiatives, Switch4Good’s adoption of a dairy-free, plant-based lifestyle, and Life Time Foundation’s removal of highly processed foods and increase in fresh food options in school nutrition programs.

Jodi is a lifelong learner who enjoys a good challenge. She loves camping and the outdoors — with a podcast to prove it. Amazing friends and family, mountain biking, creating beautiful plant-based meals over a campfire and developing signature sauces to hook her diners complete her. She holds an M.B.A, but is most proud of her certificate in Plant-based Nutrition at the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and certification as a Functional Medicine Health Coach.
