About INVEG: Inland Northwest Vegans
Our mission is to unite in compassion and educate about the ethical, environmental, economic, and health benefits of a plant based diet. Here in the beautiful Inland Northwest, where fertile soil, the four seasons, and passionate growers reside, we have an abundance of organic produce, beans, and grains to incorporate into our diet. It is our goal to offer a platform for discussion, education, and connection between vegan and vegan-curious people with businesses and ethical farmers. This website will offer a plethora of vegan resources specific to Spokane and the Inland Northwest including recipes, pamphlets, newsletters, ways to get involved, where to eat, and address key information about how consuming animal products affects the planet, our wallets, our physical, emotional, and spiritual health, and of course, the animals. It is our belief that the best way to awaken others to a compassionate lifestyle is by gently planting seeds (and cooking for them!) so while we do not ignore the truth, you will find that we only support a gentle approach to education.
If you are interested in membership, volunteering, or would like more information, please e-mail us. We are needing volunteers who can assist with: tabling, writing, designing, researching, and more. Membership is only $20 per person for the year or $35 per family. Your money helps us as a non-profit organization pay for vegan education and events – including Spokane’s first Veg Fest which is happening on June 21st. In return, you will receive a discount card for various vegan-supportive businesses in Spokane and the peace of mind that your money is supporting compassionate education. Above all, a vegan lifestyle is healthy, simple, delicious, and fun!
In November we had our 1st Annual Save a Life Tofurkey Drive. Read all about it here.
