It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the closing of The Rochester Vegan Community Center, due to unforeseen circumstances. We still believe in the need for a center here in Rochester and beyond, and we hope to be back soon in a new location, with our prior experience making for bigger and better events and activities to enrich the community. In the meantime, many of our organizers and volunteers will be hard at work coordinating Rochester’s 2nd annual VegFest on September 15. We invite you to join us there for a day full of fun, food, and friends. Once the festival is over we will be able to turn our attention back to regrouping and restoring the Rochester Vegan Community Center.

Join our mailing list below to be the first to know about any updates on the future of RVCC.

Once you join the page you'll be placed in a group of other new vegans, with a mentor where you will discuss topics about veganism, share recipes, ask questions, and gain important knowledge during your first 21 days being vegan.
