Plant-Based DFW

Welcome to Plant-Based DFW!  We offer lectures, movie screenings, potlucks & walks to build and support our community.



We are now part of the PlantPure Communities Pod Network. Join us here.

What is the purpose for a pod? To build stronger, healthier, and more sustainable communities by supporting and educating their local communities about the benefits of a whole food, plant-based lifestyle though Pod meetings and projects. This is a grassroots movement to encourage all people to eat whole plant-based foods and reduce or eliminate their consumption of animal products, including meat, dairy, fish, and eggs, and also processed food, such as sugar and oil.
