BAVeg Programs

Bay Area Vegetarians offers several programs based on our model of CARE (Community, Advocacy, Resources, and Education). These programs, and their associated events and activities, are available to both members, their guests, and the general community. To keep them accessible to everyone, most events and programs are free, managed/run by volunteers and funded entirely by donations from attendees and supporters.
