ABOUT US

OUR MISSION

Plant Based Roots strives to promote the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle through networking opportunities, educational programs, and social events.

We are a 501(c)3 charitable organization since 2017 and support our community members who want to learn and live a plant-based lifestyle. We believe our food choices have a great impact on human health, animal welfare, environment, and social justice. Plant Based Roots will empower individuals to make an informed decision through our programs and public events as well as provide resources to the community in need.

“This was my first year attending VegFest, and I really enjoyed it. I discovered several seriously yummy vegan treats, many of which will be added to my regular shopping list.”

“I just moved from Seattle, which is a vegan-strong community, and I was beyond impressed with the amount of participation across the board here in Grand Rapids! What a wonderful vegan community! From numerous local talented people, companies, vegan products, animal rescues, sanctuaries, medical professionals, healthy food, and positive energy, it was an absolute WOW!! I’m very excited to be a part of this community and look forward to watching it grow and grow! Thank you for all of the hard work – it truly showed!! Cheers!”
