About Jewish Food Hero

Hello, my name is Kenden and I am the founder of Jewish Food Hero.

I am psychotherapist and 99% vegan. I have a BA from Brown University, an MA in Counseling Psychology and a certificate in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University.  I have lived and worked for the United Nations and various NGOs in India, Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Switzerland and Cambodia.

I started Jewish Food Hero to get healthier plant-based food onto Jewish tables around the world as a way of improving our mental and physical health and helping our environment.  Food feels nourishing when it is shared, and Jewish Food Hero aims to create a positive community with members all over the world.

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.
