About INVEG: Inland Northwest Vegans

Our mission is to provide support for the vegan communities in the Inland Northwest and to educate and provide resources about the ethical, environmental, and health benefits of a plant-based diet to the veg-curious. Based out of Spokane, Washington, INVeg is the founder of Spokane Vegfest: Healthy Living Expo and the monthly Spokane potluck which features a different presenter or cooking demonstration each month. We teach Vegan 101 classes throughout Spokane, offer a membership program, table and leaflet at various events, provide vegan-friendly resources on this website for various cities in the Inland Northwest, provide vegan Thanksgiving meals to families in need, and more. We focus on a gentle approach to education – through compassion, patience, and of course – food!

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 per year or $35 per family. Your money helps us a non-profit organization pay for vegan education and events, including Spokane Vegfest, rent for our monthly potluck space, speakers, and materials, leafleting materials, and much more. 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.
