Because it would have required a large financial commitment several months ago during a time of great uncertainty due to Covid - 19, we will not be hosting a large Thanksgiving Day event in 2022.
We invite you to participate in our Thanksgiving Food & Supply Drive benefitting So Others Might Eat and the Humane Rescue Alliance, attend our Thanksliving Dinner with PLNT Burger Tasting Menu at Tysons Corner on Nov. 13 or our more intimate Thanksgiving Day gathering at Elife Vegan Restaurant in Takoma Park.
