The owners of an Upper Arlington restaurant that focuses on locally sourced and pesticide-free food will launch a foundation in August they hope will help facilitate conversations about mental health and the role of nutrition in overall wellness.

Since opening SOW Plated at Shops on Lane Avenue in July 2019, John and Sunny Fahlgren have sought to “celebrate eating at its highest level” with a menu that focuses heavily on natural and local offerings.

SOW is an acronym for sustainable, organic and wellness.

The couple plans to continue the message that healthy eating can help foster healthy bodies and minds by establishing the Wall of Hope Foundation, which John Fahlgren said will seek to provide fresh, high-quality, nutrient-rich meals for families enduring a mental-health crisis while also educating people about the critical role of food in optimizing mental health.
