Dr. Rekha Mandel Dr. Rekha Mandel – Community Engagement and Fundraising Lead

Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and The Sharing Project. I am thrilled to participate as a Board member for this wonderful organization. My husband and I moved to Mendham Township 5 years ago. We have three children Maks (12), Kira(10) and Roman(7). I practice Internal Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine at Chester Medical Associates. It has been my lifelong passion to promote disease prevention through healthy eating and exercise. As a physician I spend a lot of time with my patients, often discussing recipes and ways they can incorporate more plants into their diet. When I heard about Matthew’s garden and his aspiration to grow and donate produce-I knew I wanted to be part of this journey! Through the Sharing Project our youth volunteers will also learn about healthy nutrition, sustainability and social responsibility. I look forward to sharing my experience and knowledge about whole food plant-based nutrition with the board as well as with our community.
