Veganuary is a global movement where people go vegan in January and beyond for their health, the animals, and the environment. This event highlights Jewish food innovation in the plant-based revolution that is set to define this decade.

You will enjoy delicious plant-based food from our panelists and local innovators in the DC area: Soupergirl, Shouk, Sticky Fingers, and PLNT Burger.

Ever wondered what it takes to be a successful vegan food innovator? Come hear from 4 incredible Jewish vegan entrepreneurs changing the local food landscape!

  • Sara Polon of Soupergirl - Former stand up comedian turned master soup-maker!
  • Jonah Goldman of PLNT Burger - Environmental activist and burger connoisseur!
  • Doron Petersan of Sticky Fingers and Fare Well - Junk-foodie genius and Cupcakes Wars 2 time champion!
  • Ran Nussbacher of Shouk - Former tech industry professional and motorcyclist turned Israeli street-food and fresh market curator!
