About Us

About us veg-heads

VAVA is a non-profit educational association that provides a forum and network for exchange of information about plant-based eating, outreach events, and sharing of prepared food and recipes. We advocate entirely plant-based diets, without the use of any animal products. We welcome new members who would like to learn about vegan diets, whether or not they are currently vegetarian or vegan. 

We have a Registered Dietitian available to give a free presentation about nutrition at your school, workplace, social club, synagogue, or church, in any community in the United States. Email us to arrange a presentation.

VAVA has been recognized by the IRS as a 501c (3) charitable organization continuously since 1996. Donations to support our work are tax-deductible and are greatly appreciated. They may be sent to:
