How did you learn about Vegan Long Island—did you find us through Via Facebook? Through a friend? Did you hear about us at an event? Maybe you spotted a VEGAN button on a friendly stranger, and you struck up a conversation!

I knew Jennifer Greene when she started the meetup group and was thrilled to be a member of this community from the get go.

What's your present diet like? (We appreciate that today you may be just vegan-curious, and we're happy to have you sign up—because every vegan meal is a positive step! We ask that everyone be open to new things & always treat others with kindness.)

I've been vegan for 7 years, and I'm committed for life!

If you need compassionate support, VLI can help. Are you having trouble going or staying vegan for any reason? If so, reply "yes" here, or send us a private message—a member of the leadership team will contact you. If you're doing fine, that's great!

As a certified health coach, it would give me great pleasure to be an additional resource for support.

About participation: it's totally fine to be relatively inactive. But if you want to get involved right away, great! Do you know of a good venue for a potluck? Got time or money for projects? If so, let us know. If not, you can reply "Not right now."

I'm exhilarated with the prospect of being an activist and growing the membership of this community through my participation in outreach projects.

We love hearing your top reason(s) for choosing vegan food/vegan living:

I'm an ethical vegan. After learning about the horrific treatment of dairy cows and chickens while I was a vegetarian, I made the decision to eliminate milk products and eggs. I didn't want to have anything to do with the exploitation of these animals. Added bonuses of being vegan are my improved health and doing my part to save the planet.


I've been vegetarian since 2002 and a joyful vegan since 2008! Along with my husband, I've raised 3 amazing daughters. I'm into healthy eating, yoga, skiing, meditation, traveling, recycling, & composting. I hope to make lots of new friends in VLI!
