After a long hiatus, we're happy to announce the following CJVG news.
CJVG has joined up with the Vegetarian Society of South Jersey (VSSJ) as a step in forming a state-wide vegetarian group, the Vegetarian Society of New Jersey (VSNJ)! CJVG will become a chapter of the new group, which will be introduced at the first New Jersey VegFest on October 2nd in Morristown.
The Vegetarian Society of South Jersey (VSSJ) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is:
- Educational: To educate the public on the benefits of a plant-based diet. Information is provided through literature, videos, cooking classes, and speakers.
- Social: To provide opportunities for people to meet, share meals, and to have fun.
- Supportive: To offer advice, encouragement, and friendship to those in transition to a vegetarian diet.
VSSJ was founded in 1986, and currently has about 150 active members, a Facebook community of 450 people, and numerous additional participants on our mailing list.
VSSJ events include educational outreach, free lectures, monthly potlucks, restaurant trips, volunteer workdays, and more.
