One of the biggest questions facing the plant-based movement is how urban communities can find education and access to healthier, more wholesome food options. Hip Hop Is Green - the official non-profit partner of PBW - is leading the way by authentically merging healthy living together with hip hop culture. In 2016, HHIG created the official “10th Element of Hip Hop”, which is health and wellness, making plant-based eating, sustainability and animal welfare staples of hip-hop culture. This panel will discuss the true challenges facing urban communities and food deserts with regards to accessing and affording plant-based foods and highlight the creative solutions that Hip Hop Is Green and its allies are organizing across the country.
