Serving you everything vegan!

Canterbury’s dedicated hub for vegans and vegetarians

News in brief

How we support our community

One of our core functions is to support everyone within our community following, or interested in adopting, a vegan lifestyle. We do that by:

  • supporting members, volunteers and those seeking advice or support
  • educating the community about the benefits of a plant-based diet
  • visiting schools and offering guest speaker opportunities
  • advocating a healthy and cruelty-free lifestyle via our community events
  • running our annual Vegan Expo which has become a huge success
  • providing local community events to support the vegan community
  • publishing free fortnightly newsletters about local news and events
