Richmond Women's Health & Fitness Expo - Volunteer!
Join us for another exciting volunteer activity! Last year was the 1st year that the dairy industry hired a team to push cow's milk at this event. Happily, while many of the people we met had already made the switch to plant-based milks, many others had not and were intrigued by the fact that we were volunteers and not selling anything but a healthier + more humane lifestyle.

What we're about

Public Group

Welcome! Our group is dedicated to providing resources for people who are vegan or interested in becoming vegan.

While you need not be vegan or vegetarian to join this group, please be sincerely interested in learning more about veganism.

Thank you for your interest in our Meetup! We look forward to seeing you soon.

- The Vegetarian Society of Richmond + RVA Vegan volunteers


Please note that many of our potluck events are sponsored by the Vegetarian Society of Richmond(VSR). VSR was founded in 1995 by Lois Angeletti, years before being vegan was as cool + as common as it is today! Please note that most of the VSR potlucks do require a $3 fee to cover the cost of the venue while also supporting the Society’'s expenses including activities and outreach such as the Richmond Vegetarian Festival, the Health Expo, + the Pet Expo.
