This festival is a celebration of compassionate and healthy food choices. It's a free, day-long event featuring great local food and positive action.
58 backers pledged $3,505 to help bring this project to life.

Yes!!! Because of YOU we did it!

Wow, talk about sweaty palms and a racing heart! With less than an hour to go we saw back-to-back donations bringing the final tally to $3,505, and all of us with the Northeast Florida Veg Fest can't thank you enough.

I will thank all of you individually, many of whom I have never had the pleasure of meeting, and I will do that as soon as I'm in a calmer state, haha!

The generosity and kindness from each and every one of you is inspiring and humbling. You have helped to ensure a big success for Jacksonville's FIRST Veg Fest. Nothing can stop us now from joining a great community of people, businesses and non-profits who believe in a better world.


I hope to see you all Saturday, November 6th at the Northeast Florida Veg Fest!

Many blessings,
