Plant Powered Manhattan empowers and supports people on their path to wellness through whole-food, plant-based (WFPB) nutrition through an informal community support network and educational experiences that help us to learn about health-promoting nutrition.
Everyone is welcome to participate in our network at any place along the journey to health. Whether you are coming to this way of life via The China Study or Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Forks Over Knives or Dr. Greger, Engine2 or Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, you will find a community of like-minded friends who are learning from each other and eager to bring the benefits of WFPB nutrition to the wider community.
We have regular events in Manhattan, usually featuring a speaker on some aspect of WFPB nutrition and a pot-luck supper. Recent speakers have been Dr. Michelle McMacken, Dr. Diego Ponieman, and author J. Morris Hicks. We have an exciting lineup of future speakers and panels. We charge only a small fee for most events, just to cover our venue expenses.
Plant Powered Manhattan is an independent member organization of the PlantPure Communities Pod Network. We coordinate with nearby PlantPure pods currently in Queens, Staten Island, the Bronx, and Long Island to advance the regional movement for whole-food, plant-based wellness.
Our meetings are held at various locations throughout the city, usually in midtown.
