What is the Vegan Pledge?

The Vegan Pledge is a four-week program designed to provide all the necessary education and resources to those who are ready to give veganism a try for thirty days!  We’ll support you with a free care package, a knowledgeable vegan mentor, cooking demos, and weekly meetings over 5 consecutive Saturdays on the topics of ethics, health, environmentalism, and daily living issues.  This will be our fourth iteration, and we’ve had great success with our previous Pledges.  Many past pledge participants have remained vegan for years now and have also remained friends with those they met during the program. PAN works hard to ensure participants have resources available to them long after the pledge is over!
