Boston

We have made it our mission to make veganism accessible to communities in need throughout the Greater Boston Area- and we welcome you to join us! Together, we hope to break down the barriers that may be preventing the members of our community from enjoying the many benefits of a plant-based lifestyle. Learn more about the work that we do and how you can help out below!

Our Services...

With the goal of making veganism accessible to all, our services are completely free of charge. As we work to establish our roots here in the city of Boston, we are actively working to increase the amount of services that we can offer to the members of our community!

Meal Shares

Through our regularly scheduled meal shares at local shelters, soup kitchens, and open spaces, we provide vegan food to anyone in need of a warm meal. In addition to chili, we now offer a wide range of vegan meal options to best cater to our communities needs.

Special Events

From vegan potlucks to holiday celebrations, we host many events for both the communities that we serve as well as our amazing volunteers. Check back regularly to see what new events we're offering within the community!
