Welcome to the VSR Website!
The Vegetarian Society of Richmond is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting vegetarianism through education, activities and advocacy. We want to be a great resource for you by providing information about vegetarianism and related issues. 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 and outreach such as the annual Chili Cookoff, the Healthy Child Initiative, free literature distribution and the Richmond Vegetarian Festival.
The Society recognizes that its members are vegetarians or interested in vegetarianism for a variety of reasons including personal health, religious beliefs, environmental concerns, animal rights and world hunger and that not all members share all of them. Our meetings are open to members and non-members alike and membership is open to both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The Society is an all volunteer organization and depends upon donations of both time and money. Memberships sustain the Society as the only organization providing information on vegetarianism in the Richmond area.
