The Eating Recovery and Pathlight Foundation aspires to improve how eating disorders and mood and anxiety disorders are understood and treated. We promote education, provide resources, and support select aligned organizations in order to better the lives of individuals at risk for or experiencing eating disorders and mood and anxiety disorders, as well as their families, caregivers and treating professionals.
The Eating Recovery Foundation was created
in 2012 to be a resource for individuals suffering from
eating disorders, as well as their families and
caregivers. ERCF is an independent 501(c)(3)
organization, separate from the Eating Recovery
In 2020, the Foundation changed its name and mission to incorporate support of individuals suffering from mood and anxiety disorders, as well as focusing a portion of its work on ensuring that underserved communities have access to information and quality treatment for eating disorders and mood & anxiety disorders.
"From writing articles to clinical practice, the Information Gateway and Millie Plotkin have proven to be consistent and valuable resources.
Actually, let me rephrase: treasures!"

"The Body Project Collaborative Professional and Peer Training promised to be life-changing, it was, and will continue to change lives as we facilitate the program in more locations. Four universities and two treatment facilities participated in our Body Project Training. It was a real joy to watch the peer leader group support and encourage each other, and the professionals support and strengthen the peers as well as each other. The Body Project fulfills our wish list - it is evidence based, peer led, program material ready to go, and most importantly 'does no harm' as it fills each participant's toolbox. We are very grateful for the opportunity to receive this training and highly recommend it. Thank you so much for giving a spark and confidence in a great program for our community!
I heard several students say, 'we need this program at our campus!' "

My name is Megan R., and about a month ago your program approved me for a financial scholarship so that I could attendIntensive Outpatient Treatment at Eating Recovery Center of San Antonio. I am beyond grateful and the words "thank you" do not even begin to describe the appreciation for your organization's generosity. I was brought to tears when I was informed that this will also aid me in Supportive Housing. From the very bottom of my heart...Thank you.
