News: Read the article in U.S. 1 Magazine featuring an interview with NJveg president Steve Fenster, including thoughts on going vegan, vegan restaurants on the Rt 1 corridor in Mercer & Middlesex Counties, and of course NJveg! The cover story article is here (scroll to the 2nd page).
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. 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). A table at many of these events can cost up 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!
