If you are ready to jump in and adopt a plant-based lifestyle, there are many resources in our community to help guide you along the way. Here are just a few to get you started.
Learn About Whole-Food, Plant-Based Nutrition
Attend a Community Meal
Every month, we gather for a community meal at someone's home. Each attendee is responsible for bringing a dish to share with the group (recipe is provided for you). If you are interested in attending the next community meal, visit our Events page or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many of the members have amazing testimonials about how whole-food, plant-based nutrition has changed their life, but there are a lot of 'newbies' too. Find out what plant-based is all about and get encouragement from other members.
In addition to community meals, Healthy City hosts other events such as grocery store tours, public lectures, cooking demonstrations, and more. Click here to view all upcoming events.
