Cherry City VegFest was created to empower through education about whole foods plant-based diets by providing the resources needed to eat with greater awareness of health, the environment, ethics, and social justice.
Through the Cherry City VegFest nonprofit organization and annual event we aim to connect community members with other nonprofits, medical and health professionals, animal liberation efforts, social justice issues and academics, and small businesses with resources for eating plant-based and living a vegan lifestyle.
Plant-based eating practices are key for sustainability on our planet of 7.6 billion, and will matter even more as the global population approaches 10 billion by mid-century. Scientific studies have also demonstrated the benefits of plant-based eating both as interventions and as sustained practices for improved health outcomes. Veganism therefore serves as an orienting philosophy and invitation for the event, whether it is something people are just curious about or a practice people have already researched.
Cherry City VegFest also supports community partners and other nonprofits by inviting them to table at our event, based on the understanding that solidarity needs to extend across causes and organizations in order to truly bring about a more just and sustainable world. Through talks and workshops, cooking demos and samples, participants will gain tools for developing their own food philosophies.
The Cherry City VegFest 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization mission is to increase public awareness of the compassionate, environmental, and health benefits of a vegan lifestyle through this annual event and year-round outreach and education.
