In 2014, Brenda Sanders, co-founder of Thrive Baltimore community resource center teamed up with Naijha Wright-Brown, co-owner of The Land of Kush, an award-winning vegan soul bistro in Baltimore City to organize the inaugural Vegan SoulFest. The purpose of the collaboration was to bring information about the benefits of eating healthier, more compassionate foods to Baltimore City, and do it on a larger scale. "I’ve attended a couple of vegan festivals in surrounding county areas," Wright-Brown said. “We felt the need to bring a vegan soul festival of this kind into the heart of Baltimore’s inner city - making it accessible to people by car, train and bus."
“We’ve been pleasantly surprised by the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve gotten,” Brenda commented. “I’m so honored to be a part of bringing this festival to the people of Baltimore!”
