    The five chosen grantee restaurants are:

    Seasoned Vegan – Harlem, NYC.

    Meek’s Vegan Pizza – Houston, Texas.

    Supreme Oasis Bakery and Deli (SOBAD)–  Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

    Vegans on the Run LLC – Shreveport, Louisiana

    Plant Power Café & Juice Bar – Chattanooga, Tennessee

    “I’m excited to work with the Plant Grants restaurants because they are on the front line of the plant-based revolution in their communities, through their recipes and the individual touch they put on their dishes to give their customers a great meal,” stated RZA. 

    “We are what we eat. For me, that means I still get to eat cheese – vegan cheese from Violife – and with their help, I get to convince people to switch to foods made from plants because they taste good, they’re affordable, and there is a whole lot of variety to choose from. It’s a journey, which is why we need more restaurants like these grantees to help show us the way with delicious plant-based food,” he added.
