Our Mission: To educate and inform San Diegans about the benefits of eating a whole-food plant-based diet for optimal nutrition and health, environmental sustainability, compassion and mindfulness. We rally our community around the unifying concept of adopting a whole-food plant-based diet. We work with groups and provide support for individuals in transitioning to and/or maintaining a plant-based, animal-free diet and being conscientious stewards of the environment.
We schedule events to simply get together to learn, eat, and socialize. Please join this meet up if you want to learn about being part of the team and/or just coming to our fun events! To get in on the discussion, please "like" our page on Facebook, PlantDiego and we have a team leadership group on Facebook "PlantDiego Leadership Team."
PlantDiego plans large community events (like our Gratitude Food Fest just before Thanksgiving) and screenings of documentaries- PlantPure Nation, Cowspiracy, Forks over Knives for example), presentations by local experts, fundraisers, regular PlantDiego fun events (potlucks, meetings, visits to vegan restaurants, picnics, beach days), and community activism to get the word out about healthy plant-based diets.
This group is is a PlantPure Pod, and a member of the nation-wide network of groups formed on the heals of PlantPure Nation (http://www.plantpurenation.com) - a ground breaking film and nationwide organization about the power of plant-based eating and the politics we struggle against to get the word out! Checkout the national PlantPure Pods website (http://www.plantpurepods.com)for more information and please register as a Pod Member there, and to receive their monthly newsletter!
