Northwest VEG

Our Mission

We educate and encourage people to make vegan choices for a healthy, sustainable, and compassionate world.


More and more people are choosing plant-based foods for a variety of reasons. Going veg is not about deprivation, it's about celebration. It's a very powerful choice to respect your body, the earth and other beings. Every plant-based meal is a vote for compassion, for healthy, nutritious food, for clean air and water, biodiverse habitats and sustainable farming practices. There are lots of reasons to choose to eat veg! Everybody has a different one!

Northwest VEG is a non-profit 501(c)(3) group in the Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA area. Founded in 2003, we are dedicated to bringing awareness to the power of a veg lifestyle and helping support people in their transition toward making healthier, more sustainable & compassionate food choices. We welcome everyone, and encourage you to explore veg issues at your own pace. Our purpose is to:

  • Build, support & maintain community in a fun environment
  • Build, connect & network in the larger community
  • Provide education & outreach
  • Be a responsible, effective, transparent organization
  • Provide expertise & serve as a resource to the community on veg issues
  • Create positive change & make the world a better place
