U.S. Veg Corp Partners with Plant Powered Metro New York on a Mission to Heal New York City

Plant-based nutrition nonprofit is the official charity partner of the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival + Symposium.

New York, NY, February 25, 2022 --(PR.com)-- The NYC Vegetarian Food Festival + Symposium is returning this year to Manhattan on May 21-22 with a special focus on healing the city one person at a time. U.S. Veg Corp, the organization behind the beloved event, has always rooted itself in educating the public about the positive results of adopting a plant-based lifestyle and never has this message been so timely and receptive as now. Having Plant Powered Metro New York (PPMNY) as this year’s non-profit beneficiary is bound to not only shine a light on this organization but assist so many individuals in getting a handle on their health and wellness.

Since its inception back in 2011, the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival was created specifically for the community to gather and be exposed to like-minded restaurants, products and organizations and to learn how to live a more sustainable and healthier lifestyle. U.S. Veg Corp’s co-founder, Nira Paliwoda, explains “I feel that NYC needs this type of event more than ever to not only help local businesses and restaurants but also provide resources for those that need to regain control of their health. But there is just so much we can do on a festival weekend. That’s why partnering with PPMNY was an ideal choice. They carry on assisting the community we love and cherish throughout the year.”

PPMNY’s Network Director, Lianna Levine Reisner says, “There is tremendous, growing interest in the role that plant-based diets play in health and healing. As the go-to regional voice for plant-based nutrition, Plant Powered Metro New York is thrilled to partner with U.S. Veg Corp and the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival + Symposium, bringing greater exposure to this healthy lifestyle and telling a new story about food as medicine. We hope participants will walk away with the understanding that this isn't "just" nutrition but a movement -- and one that can support all of us in achieving lifelong, vibrant health through wholesome plant foods."
