History

The Northeast Florida Vegetarian Society is a volunteer group that has since June 1999 welcomed vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. We operate as a 501 (c)(3) through Saving Animals via Education (S.A.V.E.) whose support enables us to expand awareness and participation.

Our Mission

Our mission/goal is to promote veganism for a healthy body, spirit, environment — and as the only compassionate choice that alleviates animal suffering. We recognize the extensive connection our diet choices have to every aspect of our lives.

For example, factory farming contributes so rampantly to greenhouse gas emissions that our carbon footprint recedes more by eating a vegan diet than by driving a hybrid car.
