Save a Life Tofurkey Drive: Delivering plant-based(vegan) meals to people in need for Thanksgiving

We exceeded our expectations of 30 families for 2017 & received over 45 requests this year! Thank you Spokane for letting us support you πŸ™‚ 

Every November, INVeg provides vegan holiday meals to families in need. We feel that often the food bank simply cannot provide an ample meal for vegans and so that is why our event was created. We want people to feel truly loved when they receive this feast. This event is supported 100% by the generosity of our local businesses & INVEG members.  All donations & sponsorships are tax deductible.

Qualifications: Being a loving and compassionate person/family who needs support to make Thanksgiving day special this year. We want to share with you this meal as a way to thank you for existing πŸ™‚ You are helping us build a brighter world!

Request a meal:
If you would like to request one of these meals please fill out our form with your name, how many people will be at your dinner feast and phone number. We will coordinate a time to meet in a location of Spokane on Tuesday the  22st and Wednesday the 22nd of November. Please read over the inclusion list below and let us know if there is anything you do not want or need in the form.

Special Requests: If there is something special that would make this dinner perfect and you cannot afford, please ask. We may not be able to provide it, but we will do our best! The form has an area to mention special requests. If you have questions email us at

Pumpkin Pie!!! – We are again producing homemade vegan pumpkin pies this year. Because it is such an intense project to produce 30+ vegan pies, we may not be able to make one for everyone but we will do our best. If people want to help Josh make pies, email him. We use The Gentle Chef’s pumpkin pie as the base of our recipe. It is the most delicious pumpkin pie on earth!!! πŸ™‚ Last year Josh made 40 for friends and family. He is planning to increase production this year πŸ™‚

RECIPE: Here is the recipe we developed over the years: Josh’s Gentle Pumpkin Pie Recipe
