Plant Powered for Health is a plant based nutrition support group located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  This all volunteer group is centered around evidence-based research that shows the incredible health benefits of a whole food, plant-based diet (WFPB) low in fat, salt and sugar without added oils.  This includes studies and publications by physicians and researchers such as Drs. Dean Ornish, Caldwell Esselstyn, T. Colin Campbell, Neal Barnard, John McDougall and others, that have demonstrated a WFPB diet to slow down, stop or in some cases reverse many chronic diseases.

Our group strives to empower all who want to optimize their health by providing community meetings and events, discussion of the science, sharing of WFPB food, and camaraderie on the journey.   Food, Friends, Science and Support! Join us!  Our group meets monthly on either the first Wednesday or the second Monday of each month from 6-8 pm.  There is no fee to attend, but we do accept donations and have raffle drawings and special offerings to help to cover expenses.

  1. Hi, I’m looking for a recommendation for a whole-plant-based doctor in the Grand Rapids area. I’m thinking about going WPB but would like to do it with the help from a professional. I want to work with a professional who can help me prevent and talk about certain conditions I have been diagnosed.
