Our Mission

VeganRVA is about advocacy for all living things. We want to make a vegan lifestyle more accessible by bringing awareness to all the amazing vegan options in the surrounding area through education, as well as starting conversations about animals, the environment, people, and our community.

If you’re a vegan, vegan-curious, or completely skeptical of a vegan lifestyle, we’re here for you. This is an accepting place that focuses on building people up and encouraging them to take baby steps, not a place for condemnation and shaming. We all start somewhere, and we strive to provide information that is relevant whether you’ve been vegan for 30 years or you could never imagine being vegan.

VeganRVA is also about community and collaboration. We want to hear from you! VeganRVA is a collaborative volunteer effort and we strongly believe we’re better together. Your ideas and interests can help other people, so let us know what you have on your mind!

  • You can share your recipe ideas and favorite places to eat through Instagram by tagging us or by using the hashtags #rvavegan or #veganrva.
  • If you have story ideas, you can submit them here.
  • Let us know about the animal rescues, humanitarian organizations, and environmental protection groups that you admire most.
  • Most importantly, be kind to all.
