Through our exceptional team, technology-driven approach, and community commitment, we are making nutritious meals accessible for all. Our mission is about more than food; it's about providing support, education, and guidance, transforming lives one meal at a time.

In 2012, Tim Dougherty combined his passion for healthy living and cooking to conceive Project LeanNation, aiming to empower others to achieve their health goals. Starting with a small group of friends, Tim prepared nutritious meals that led to improved energy levels and reduced body fat, sparking the initial growth of a health-focused community.

Project LeanNation has evolved into a nationwide initiative, offering structured nutrition, support, and guidance, transforming countless lives along the way. From its modest start to its current nationwide reach, Tim Dougherty's vision has made Project LeanNation a driving force for community health and empowerment.

At Project LeanNation, we live by our core values. From supporting our community to coaching with enthusiasm and emotional intelligence, we are committed to delivering on our promise of health, nutrition, and empowerment. Our values guide our decisions and motivate us to create lasting impact.
