Our Vision

person visiting a big pigVSDC believes in treating people, animals, and the planet with respect and kindness. We encourage people to live more compassionate and healthier lives by eliminating animal products from their diets and lifestyles.

We foster growing communities of like-minded people where it is safe to explore plant-based diets. We are inclusive and people at all stages of their journey are welcomed. Our members come from many walks of life, but they are compassionate, caring, and committed to our cause.

VSDC is a clear and consistent voice for improving the lives of all beings through education on the benefits of vegan and vegetarian diets. Sharing food is the bond that brings families together; so is it with our large and growing family. From simply ‘breaking bread’ to experiencing delicious and nutritious vegan foods from around the world, we make your journey easier, enjoyable and meaningful.

VSDC: Creating communities. For your health, the animals, and the planet.


Mission Statement: The Vegetarian Society of DC (VSDC) is an educational nonprofit organization promoting the tremendous benefits of vegetarianism through education, community-building, and social activities. VSDC welcomes people wherever they are on the path to an all-plant, vegan diet and lifestyle.
