PlantPure Communities Restaurant Campaign Launch and Press Conference
[New York City, NY] The PlantPure Communities Restaurant Campaign will be launched at a Press Conference being held at P.S. Kitchen in New York City on Nov. 30th at 2:45pm. At the Press Conference, the nonprofit PlantPure Communities (PPC) will be joined by 4-time NBA Champion John Salley, best-selling author Dr. T. Colin Campbell, PhD, and director of the PlantPure Nation film Nelson Campbell.
According to the Center for Disease Control, chronic diseases and conditions—such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and arthritis—are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems, and more than half of all American adults has at least one of these conditions. The goal of the PPC Restaurant Campaign is for every restaurant, across the nation and the globe, to offer at least one plant-based meal with no oil, on their menu to support the health needs of America’s chronically ill population. Restaurants will increase their customer base and Americans will be able to continue to dine out confident that they are not exacerbating their health condition. Already, restaurants in California, New York, Florida and Virginia have made changes to their menu and are participating in the Campaign.
The press and other media influencers are invited to attend the PPC Restaurant Campaign Press Conference, which will offer an overview of the Campaign, how restaurants and advocates can get involved, and what the benefits are for those who participate. PPC reps, and leaders in the Campaign’s initial pilot run will be on hand to provide information, answer questions and share success stories.
