What we're about

Plant Powered Metro New York is catalyzing the local movement for vibrant health through whole-food, plant based (WFPB) nutrition. We empower and support people who have chosen this diet and lifestyle, raise awareness locally about the tremendous health benefits, and seek to bring about communal change. We are an independent member organization of the PlantPure Communities Pod Network.

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.

Our meetings are held at various locations throughout the boroughs of New York City, Long Island, and soon will include New Jersey as well.
