About Plant Powered Metro New York

Plant Powered Metro New York (PPMNY) empowers our diverse local communities to find better health and overcome chronic illness with whole food, plant-based nutrition. Ample evidence shows that plant-powered eating can prevent and even reverse many of today’s common chronic diseases. Founded in March 2019, PPMNY offers evidence-based education, resources, and support to inspire meaningful change and improve health throughout the New York metropolitan area.

Mobilizing a community-driven movement, PPMNY stewards a grassroots network comprised of dozens of educators and volunteers hailing from NYC and its surrounding counties who work to:

  • Raise awareness about the dramatic health benefits of eating predominantly whole plant foods.
  • Build food and health literacy among the region’s diverse populations, through experiential programs that advance both knowledge and skills.
  • Enable substantial dietary change toward tangible health improvements — and provide ongoing support for maintaining healthy habits.
  • Promote a healthier regional food ecosystem.

While much of what we do is accessible and applicable to the general population, PPMNY focuses many of our partnerships and programs on three objectives:

  1. Advancing healthier and more dignified aging with nutrition.
  2. Reducing health disparities in Black and Hispanic populations.
  3. Advancing plant-based nutrition in healthcare as a transformative intervention.
