Join PlantPure Communities for our Party with a Purpose event in NYC. Dr. T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study and Whole, will give a provocative presentation about the importance of the grassroots movement to dispel the myths that cause widespread confusion about nutrition. Nelson Campbell, the founder of PlantPure Communities, will connect PPC’s accomplishments with a larger, inspiring vision for growing the movement. These short presentations will be followed by a discussion that will allow for interaction with the audience. This event will also feature:

  • A report on the tangible outcomes emerging from the PPC Oasis Program, Pod Network, Toolkits, Advocacy Council, Restaurant Campaign, Food-Climate Connection Initiative, and more!
  • Networking opportunities
  • Delicious plant-based (no added oil) buffet and wine
  • Beautiful venue on the Upper East side of Manhattan

This event promises to be a warm, intimate memory-making occasion filled with great networking and learning!

Seating is extremely limited and tickets are expected to sell out again.
