A Very Vegan Food Drive – Please Donate and Feed the Hungry!

Join VegFund and A Well-Fed World to be part of the FIRST vegan food drive in the U.S.! Click here to contribute to this very special drive to raise donations of healthy, plant-based foods that will go directly to people struggling with hunger, save animals, and be kind to the environment.

This landmark drive marks a big month for the animals! Beginning October 1, our campaign celebrates World Vegetarian Day, World Farmed Animal Day, and World Food Day. We end on World Vegan Day, November 1. It's easy to help! Click here to find out how.

Your support from now through November 1, 2016, goes to some terrific hunger organizations including Chilis on Wheels, based in New York City, and other partner campaigns, City Harvest and the Food Recovery Network. All have joined in to get vegan foods to the hungry.
