Welcome to NJveg!


NJveg is an all-volunteer non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation, initially focusing on central New Jersey.

Our mission:
  • Advocacy:  educating the public on the benefits of a plant-based diet via free literature, speakers, and more; and providing support to those in transition
  • Social:  providing opportunities to volunteer, share meals, and join in other activities
 
NJveg’s next events (details on our Event Calendar):
  • Outreach:  9/14 – Bound Brook; 9/21 – Berkeley Heights & Trenton; 9/22 – Highland Park
  • Potlucks:  Autumn – 11/30 – Flemington
  • Restaurant Outings:  TBD
  • Gourmet Vegan Dinners:  10/6 – Lady and the Shallot, Trenton [Tickets]; 12/11 – Vaulted Cuisine, Mt Holly
  • Volunteer Work Days:  11/9 & 11/16 – Goats of Anarchy, Hampton

We need volunteers to help with outreach and other events, social media, publicity, fundraising, and more.  Much of this can be done from home.  If you are interested in volunteering in any way, even if only for an hour a month or so, we’d love to have your help!  We’re also looking to recruit some motivated volunteers to organize NJveg chapters in northern New Jersey, northern Ocean County, and elsewhere.  Please let us know if you’re interested in assisting.

Unable to volunteer?  Please consider a tax-deductible donation to help us pay for event fees, supplies, and literature (click the Donate button below).  Unfortunately the price for a table at many of these events has increased by 50% ths year to $90 for a non-profit, so contributions are essential for us to participate.  Thank you!

We’re looking for venues for educational outreach, hosting potlucks, speakers, and more.  Know of a suitable location anywhere in central NJ – perhaps your community center or place of worship – that is free or low-cost for non-profits?  Please let us know!
