What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
Join Plant Powered Metro New York for a casual virtual space to connect, share stories, and swap meal ideas for healthy living. We'll gather via Zoom over dinner hour and show each other what we're eating! If you're looking for meal inspiration or have questions about eating plant-based, you'll find support from like-minded members of the PPMNY community.
Registrants will be invited to share a favorite whole food, plant-based recipe through a simple online form -- either the meal you've prepared for the "potluck" or one you've enjoyed this season.
A Zoom link will be sent on the day of the event.
Abundant with fresh, local produce, farmers' markets are a perfect place to find your favorites and discover new-to-you fruits and vegetables to add to your plate. Join PPMNY volunteer Shoshana Goldberg at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket, where we'll explore the diverse world of plants available in your neighborhood and connect with local farmers. Learn tips for choosing, storing, and enjoying the bounty of fall produce. Come prepared to leave with inspiration for your next nutritious snack or delicious meal of whole plant foods!
This event is limited to 8 participants. Registrants will receive details on the meeting point and volunteer contact information prior to the event. Event access is by donation or free to anyone unable to contribute.

Live a WFPB lifestyle with the support of others on the same path to health!

If you're new to whole food, plant-based nutrition, our introductory session is your launching pad. You'll get a big-picture look at the evidence-based science of whole food, plant-based nutrition, starter tips and recipes, and answers to your questions! Led by PPMNY's Nutrition Educator, Gail Mayer, MS, RD, CDN, and a PPMNY Culinary Educator, this session will give you a foundation of knowledge and practical next steps to get started on your path to a plant-based lifestyle.
Please note that our program is designed for those who are newer to the evidence behind and lifestyle of whole food, plant-based nutrition; if you are well-versed in the subject, you may enjoy other PPMNY events more.
You can also take advantage of our complimentary Plant Powered Lifestyle Mentorship program -- matching you with a peer mentor for 30 days -- to give you personalized support on your journey to vibrant health.
