  • Our awesome friends at Angel Food have raised more than $1500 for our new scheme, Vegan Angels – delivering vegan meals and baking to people in times of need. But we need to raise a total of $3700 to cover the cost of the programme for its first year and still have a long way to go to reach that goal. Please click here to donate now. Every dollar helps! 

  • The Christchurch Vegan Society stands in solidarity with those oppressed, intimidated, marginalised and persecuted because of their skin colour/race. Everyone deserves to be treated fairly and with dignity. Racism continues when silence is maintained. We send our support to the BLM movement. #solidarity #BLM #BlackLivesMatter #GeorgeFloyd 👊
