Founded in 2005, The Asheville Vegan Society is a North Carolina 501(c)(3)non-profit corporation.
Our Purpose is to create a compassionate, enlightened community where veganism is the accepted and respected norm.
Our Vision is to be the go-to resource for vegan education, materials, community, and support in the Asheville area.
Our Mission is to promote the benefits of a vegan lifestyle through varied activities and community engagement.
We hold regular potlucks, have meals out, host speakers and film screenings, enjoy various social events together, put out a vegan dining guide, provide education and support, administer the Veg Discount Card program, host a hugely wonderful ThanksLiving dinner each year, and have organized four Asheville VegFests in the past.
You can find our events posted on Meetup. All are welcome to join. We only ask people to honor all animals by ordering vegan food when dining with us and bringing a vegan dish to share when attending potlucks.
