The following day, Norwood will present a healthy food demonstration to students, parents and teachers at the Warren Prescott Elementary School in Charlestown, MA as part of its Meatless "Carbon Offset Program." The program was initiated by the Oceanic Society and Quen.ch, an environmental education outreach group from the Harvard University Extension. The raw food lifestyle is regarded as having the smallest ecological footprint.

"This vital interconnectivity among our food, our health and our environment is every reason for communities and schools to come together to gain knowledge and share resources to improve our future," said Alisyn Johnson, event organizer. "That is the motivation behind these events."

"Supercharge Me!" is a "rawcumentary" -- a humorous film that shows what happens when one volunteer human guinea pig (Jenna Norwood) consumes only raw, organic food for 30 days. The original inspiration was weight loss, but the results went beyond the visible to those which were more profound; including lower cholesterol, lower blood sugar, elimination of chronic pain, improved mental clarity and happier disposition.

Norwood's odyssey took her from Sarasota, Florida to San Diego, California where she enrolled in a 30-day raw food detox program and ate only uncooked "living" foods. Generally, these foods include organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouted grains, blended soups, smoothies and juices. The 30-day experiment was to test the belief that food in its raw state has greater nutritional value and contains more enzymes. Documentary cameras followed Norwood as she transformed her life with a raw food diet and interviewed doctors, raw food experts, celebrities (Ben Vereen and Kathy Sledge) and a variety of others from around the world who follow the raw food lifestyle.
