Who Hosts Veg Food Fest?

Veg Food Fest is hosted by the Toronto Vegetarian Association (a Toronto-based non-profit) and in partnership with Harbourfront Centre. Founded in 1945, the Toronto Vegetarian Association (TVA) aims to inspire people to choose a healthier, greener, more compassionate lifestyle. We promote the benefits of vegetarian diets and support those who choose to reduce or eliminate their consumption of animal products by providing resources and a friendly community. You can become a member of the TVA, here.
