More coming soon!  

At these events, NJveg answers questions and provides free literature on the benefits of a plant-based diet.  Come out for an hour, or the entire event.  No experience is necessary.  We particularly need help setting up (usually about an hour before events) and packing up (to about 30 minutes after events).

We can’t staff our tables without you, so please consider volunteering for one or more events.  Help NJveg spread the word that going vegan saves animals, protects the environment, and improves your health — to potentially hundreds of people at each event!  We’ll register for events pending enough volunteers – at least 3 for setting up and 3 for packing up. The number of volunteers still needed for each event is listed above.  Please let us know which of these dates (and times – setup, pack up, both, or other) you can help out.  There aren’t many organizations that fill this role, so please consider helping out!

If you’re interested in joining NJveg’s outreach team, please contact us at NJveg.org@gmail.com or 609-557-7077 (text preferred).  Unable to volunteer?  Please consider a tax-deductible donation to help us pay for event fees (which can run $100+), supplies, and literature (click the Donate button at NJveg.org).  Thank you!
