Who We Serve

OUR ASSOCIATION PROVIDES SCHOLARSHIPS TO STUDENTS WHO WANT TO ATTEND COLLEGE, AND ALSO FOR THOSE ALREADY ATTENDING COLLEGE.

WE HAVE A GROUP OF CHEFS THAT PUT TOGETHER A “CHEF AND CHILD” COMMUNITY WORKSHOP FOR THE AREA'S INNER CITY SCHOOLS. THE CHEFS HELP EDUCATE THE KIDS ON HOW TO MAKE HEALTHFUL CHOICES OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, INSTEAD OF CANDY AND FAST FOODS. BOOKS ARE PROVIDED BY THE AMERICAN VEGAN SOCIETY, AND ARE LEFT AT THE SCHOOLS.
