Group Guidelines To create a respectful and safe atmosphere for everyone who becomes involved, we have established these guidelines for engagement, in person and online:
Anyone can participate in our network at any place along the journey to health.
We refrain from judging each other’s dietary or lifestyle choices, as we recognize that there are tremendous peer and societal pressures working against us.
We follow the PlantPure Communitiesculinary philosophy when we’re eating together and when we’re raising awareness in the community.
We don’t prescribe anything beyond this culinary philosophy unless we are making a formal presentation to the group. We share about what we each choose to do personally; we don’t preach.
We don’t assume that our food choices relate to our politics.
We refrain from excessive self-promotion or promotion of one’s business.
We seek to make room for all voices in our discussions.
We respect everyone’s right to privacy, especially about health matters.
Plant Powered Manhattan is building the local movement for wellness through whole-food, plant-based (WFPB) nutrition. As a grassroots, volunteer-led collective, we are an independent member organization of the PlantPure Communities Pod Network.
