Our Rochester Vegan Living Program is currently on hiatus. Please sign up for our newsletter below to be notified when the Rochester VLP returns!

Want to go vegan, but need some help and support? Be a Vegan Pledge in the Rochester Vegan Living Program! The Vegan Living Program (VLP) is a FREE educational program that covers the how’s and why’s of living vegan, including the ethical and environmental considerations of veganism, nutrition, cooking, meal planning, and living vegan in a not-yet-vegan world. Participants pledge to live vegan for the duration of the program, with the help of volunteer Vegan Coaches and our educational program. Pledges receive a binder full of resources and recipes, and a goody bag of free vegan stuff to make the transition easier and more fun!

It’s clear that more and more of us are interested in addressing animal exploitation, tackling climate change, and concerned about our own health. In fact, according to search engine giant Google, the search interest for “vegan” is on the rise, increasing 32% in recent years. Whatever your motivation, the Vegan Living Program is designed to provide you with the support you need, and to build a community of like-minded individuals.


The Vegan Living Program has been held with overwhelming success from 2011-2017 in Baltimore, MD, since 2014 in Long Island, NY (in conjunction with the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College), and since 2018 in Syracuse, NY and Rochester, NY (in conjunction with Animal Rights Rochester).


The second Rochester VLP's dates are still to be determined, so sign up for our email list to get notice when registration opens!

"The Vegan Living Program truly validated that being vegan is for me. I became vegan for health reasons, but now I am vegan for so much more. The VLP open my eyes to the different benefits of veganism, such as the animals, environment, world hunger, etc. Having a coach as well as the weekly events was so encouraging and helpful. I definitely recommend this program. I learned so much that will benefit me for a lifetime."
