VegFest Volunteers Needed

This is it folks. VegFest 2013 is upon us.

And now it’s time to ask yourself not what your VegFest can do for you, but what you can do for your VegFest.

The NCVA is seeking its most knowledgeable, its most charismatic, its most health conscious and dedicated-to-the-plight-of-animals members. These upstanding citizens will have the honour and privilege of spreading the veg message by working the NCVA table.

And hell, we welcome the mouth-breathers as well. If you can read the size on a t-shirt and break a $20 bill, you’re in!

In all seriousness, though, it’s the selflessness and dedication of our volunteers that allows the NCVA to exist, and we truly do need you to make this year’s VegFest a success.

VegFest 2012 - best pea pod ever!

So if you can spare 2-4 hours on Saturday June 22 or Sunday June 23 to stand behind the NCVA table and spread the good veg word, please contact us at

There will be four two-hour shifts each day: 9 am – 11 am, 11 am – 1 pm, 1 pm – 3 pm and 3 pm – 5 pm. The duties are pretty simple: You’ll answer basic questions about plant-based eating (if you can – if not, defer to one of the more experienced volunteers or just offer some literature), renew NCVA memberships, sell some t-shirts, and just generally be a shiny, happy role model for compassionate plant-based living.

So again, email us at to request your preferred time slot, or just to get more info.

A final note – because the NCVA is not running VegFest this year, we’re only looking for tablers, as opposed to the big roster of different duties we listed in previous years. If you’re looking to volunteer with VegFest as an event, rather than with the NCVA specifically, head over to the VegFest website and fill out their volunteer form.
