Welcome

Welcome!

Welcome to the website of the Vegetarian Society of Richmond, Virginia!  We are here to support you in pursuing a healthy, compassionate, earth-friendly vegetarian lifestyle.  Whether you are a committed vegan or just trying out a few vegetarian dishes, you are welcome here!  See our events page for a list of upcoming events.  We hope to see you soon!

The Vegetarian Society of Richmond is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting vegetarianism through education, activities and advocacy.  We seek to unite vegetarians and those interested in vegetarianism in the Richmond area.  Activities may include restaurant visits, potlucks, lectures, classes, hikes, field trips, outreach, etc.  Membership is open to both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.  A vegetarian lives on a diet free of flesh foods, with or without dairy products and eggs. The VSR recognizes that its members are vegetarians or interested in vegetarianism for a variety of reasons--including personal health, religious beliefs, concern for the environment, animal rights, and world hunger--and that not all members share all of them.  We welcome your membership and your participation.  Our meetings are open to members and non-members alike.
