Join me in spreading the great news of disease prevention and achieving optimal health through adopting a whole food plant based diet! The cure for many diseases, even those thought to be genetically unavoidable or incurable can be found in responsible food choices. Come taste the future of medicine: whole plant foods!
GreenFare is an innovative community cafe and learning center that serves organic, whole plant food in concert with medical professionals, environmentalists, and animal welfare advocates who recognize that this optimal diet can positively transform our world.
At GreenFare, we strive to provide a local, sustainable, and seasonal menu that is delicious, fresh and locally prepared oil-free with low sodium, along with catering, and a variety of events including cooking classes, book signings, and Kickstart programs, among others to stimulate thinking about the impact of our food choices on ourselves, our families, the environment, and animals. With love, we offer this food to our guests with the hope of nourishing healthy people and a healthy planet!

Gwyn Whittaker, CEO & Owner
After a long and successful career as an entrepreneur in high-performance computing, Gwyn decided to dedicate the next chapter of her life to helping create a healthier world. Inspired by the documentary Forks Over Knives, Gwyn completed the Plant Based Nutrition Certificate Program from Cornell’s Center for Nutritional Studies, attended Dr. John McDougall’s Wellness Program, and worked with Nelson Campbell to successfully execute a 45 person 10-day JumpStart program that transformed the lives of so many of its participants. It was from these experiences that the idea of GreenFare was born–a cafe where education and awareness are promoted around awesome whole plant food that is certified organic and oil free.
Pericles Silva, Operations Manager Pericles Silva has a degree in Sports Nutrition, is a certified PCRM Food for Life Instructor, and developed and delivered the Healthy Eating program at Whole Foods in Reston for five years.
