About Jewish Food Hero


Jewish Food Hero offers articles, vegan and plant based recipes, interviews and beautiful products.

Inclusive of all religions and cultures, I highlight Jewish traditions in particular.

One of those healthier choices I advocate for is centering your plate and diet around minimally-processed plant foods, which include vegetables, fruits, tubers, whole grains, and legumes (and excludes meat, dairy, eggs, and highly processed foods).

The Jewish Food Hero is not a single person, but a female archetype that calls out to the healthy heroine within each of us. It’s here to challenge you to transform your relationship with your mind, body, and spirit to create a new and healthy future for our world.


About Kenden Alfond



I’m a Jewish woman currently living in Cambodia with my husband and daughter.

When I was 12 years old, I chose to become a vegetarian (and now I’m a vegan).

After getting a MA in counseling psychology in 2005, I went to India as an American Jewish World Service (AJWS) volunteer.  Since then I have been living and working around the world on humanitarian, post-conflict, and development issues with the United Nations and several NGOs.

In 2013, I obtained a certificate in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University.  I started Jewish Food Hero to get healthier food onto Jewish tables around the world.

When I am not working on Jewish Food Hero, I am working as a psychotherapist and helping out at this school.
