“The Hip Hop Green Dinner was a night filled with helpful information and great cruelty free food. I was already on the way to veganism when I attended, however my compassion grew when I heard the vegan message presented through song and poetry. Now I know the power of the consumer voice and a plant-based diet for life and longevity. ”

-- Jasmine Javier

"The diversity in the room was bananas and the event, aimed at youth, was a glimpse of what every movement that will sustain must be -- consisting of several generations. You had the young and the older and the elder. It was dynamic. The evening was already a win with the Field Roast burger and their new Vegan Chao Cheese slices but when the beat dropped and some of the children joined DJ Cavem on the stage to rock out to his Mango Remix with mango, kale, and cayenne pepper in hand, all of us in the room just about lost it"!

"When I think of Hip Hop and Food, I think healthy spirits, minds, bodies and happy energy shared amongst many different communities of folks that are vibing and enjoying one another! Pursuit of a Green Planet and Hip Hop is Green Dinners is a hidden gem and my experience with Keith and all the volunteers has enriched my spirit in every way imaginable, first, to see so many interested in veganism, healthy love flowing and inspirational life changing hiphop was completely inspirational"! Chef Ariel Bangs - Healthy Creations

"I have known Mr. Tucker for more than six years and have had the pleasure to watch him develop his Green Dinner program up close…both as a volunteer and sponsor.
Bringing the green message to the fortunate few is easy. Bringing the green message to the masses is another story. Keith Tucker is a man with passion and the talent to make it happen. Keith’s mission is to bring health and compassion to the Hip Hop culture. I have personally witnessed Keith’s energy and ability to bridge cultures; to make it green AND hip. Its leaders like Keith who will define a new way of being as America moves into a fresh paradigm of sustainability and compassion".

"The Hip Hop Green Dinner held Sunday, February 8, 2015 was an excellent event. A good time was had by all. We were able to bring four youth from our program, and an additional seven staff, family and friends.

The musical presentation, the discussion and information about the benefits of eating healthy rang true throughout the evening. When talking to the youth they expressed surprise when told the hamburger they were eating was not beef but was made from grains. They made comments like, “I want another one of those burgers” and “where can I tell my mom to buy those grain burgers?” I think this event and the message of health to the Hip Hop community and generation is iconic in that this has broken new ground in providing lifesaving information to a sector in our society who otherwise may not hear it.

Using Hip Hop to spread this message is “genius”.

"My experience with the hip hop green dinner was refreshing and inspiring. By participating in the green dinner, I personally was able to reflect on my life style and my relationship with food as a young person. Keith and others with healthy life style has inspired me to make conscious decisions as to what I put in my body. Besides the delicious green foods we made, it was so much fun to see the performance by talented artists and green chefs. Seeing how hip hop music and green life style come hand in hand is amazing".

About Luna & Larry's Coconut Bliss

People are continually asking us how we came up with Luna & Larry's Coconut Bliss. We'd like to say we are entrepreneurial geniuses, but the truth is much humbler—we just wanted a tasty frozen dessert that we could enjoy eating without feeling bad afterwards. We had both given up dairy for health and ethical reasons, and tried all the soy- and rice-based alternatives, but weren't satisfied with any of them. They either didn't taste good, or we felt sick after eating them, or they had a long list of ingredients that didn't really sound like food. One day Luna said 'what about coconut milk?' We'd used it a lot in Thai-style cooking and it seemed ideal. It was naturally rich and creamy and had great nutritional properties. So with the aid of a two-dollar hand-cranked ice cream maker from Goodwill we made our first batch. As soon as we tried it, we knew we were on to something special. As time went by and we shared it with our friends, who also loved it, it became apparent to us that we should focus our energy on this and make it available to more people. --Luna & Larry Kaplowitz, Founders
