Since 2009, Hip Hop Is Green (HHIG) has been the health & wellness leader in the plant-based Hip Hop movement. We were the first organization to serve plant-based meals to youth and families combined with hip hop at our Hip Hop is Green Dinners. We have the distinction of producing the first nation-wide plant-based Hip Hop tours in history and have impacted the lives of thousands of people. We have served more than 8000 meals to youth and families. In 2017, we had the honor of being one of five organizations in the nation to be nominated for Michelle Obama’s “Catalyst for Change” award.
Through our national chapters, we produce year long live events, which include the Green Dinners, 10th Element of Hip Hop Symposiums and Concerts, field trips, and the Hip Hop is Green eXpo. We represent the most innovative health and wellness movement of our time. We aim to inform and inspire by introducing plant-based food, recipes, products, and ideas to youth and families in urban areas. HHIG’s team of chefs, best-selling authors, artists, and performers use Hip Hop to speak to a younger generation and spark positive change in their lives. We are pioneers in this new green age of Hip Hop and are on a mission to make being healthy cool to young people.
Hip Hop encompasses an entire culture that goes beyond music. Hip Hop is the world’s most popular genre and art form, simultaneously influencing politics, social issues, culture, and society as a whole. We focus on raising consciousness through positive messaging that resonates with youth and Hip Hop fans of all ages. For the younger generation Hip Hop culture is a powerful force, and by moving hip hop in a “green” direction, the world will move in a green direction.
The Hip Hop is Green team would be honored to partner with you. Your support helps us reach more people. Together we can galvanize our youth and communities and achieve the goals of vibrant health by eliminating preventable diseases caused by economics, poor health education, and sedentary lifestyles.
