Good Food Collective is returning to VegFest!
The GFC offers flexible year-round access to fresh food from local farmers. Their deliveries and community pickups are a convenient way to source local, sustainably grown ingredients. They offer many weekly vegan shares such as veggie and fruit boxes, specialty mushrooms and veggie burgers, and also have an online marketplace of local add-ons like kombucha, kimchi and polenta.
They will be bringing fruit and veggies to sample, plus a few items for sale such as kimchi, maple syrup, apple cider and pear jam.
Off Leash Apparel is coming to VegFest! This vegan-owned local business’ main focus is on animal rescue, adoption and liberation. They donate 10% of profits to local animal shelters and rescues in the area, and another 10% to national animal organizations including Operation Glass Walls and In Defense of Animals.
We are so excited to say that our newest Gold Sponsor is Lori’s Natural Foods Center— we look forward to seeing them this year at the VegFest!
Lori’s has been a mainstay in the health community of Rochester for several decades, and has been a strong supporter of our programs. They told us that they are sponsoring us again because they want to let as many people as possible know about veganism, and they had a great time last year to boot! Thank you!
Burning Books is returning to VegFest! This Buffalo bookstore had a popular booth last year with tons of interesting books on a variety of progressive topics. We are very excited to have them return!
Thank you to our Silver Sponsor and exhibitor GreenSpark Solar! Previously known as SunCommon, GreenSpark will be bringing their solar-powered charging station to VegFest so you can charge all your devices up sustainably!
GreenSpark, a Certified B Corporation, helps people put solar cells on their home’s roof, and if that isn’t practical for someone, they also sell solar energy from a local solar farm at prices competitive to conventional suppliers.
They’ll also make a donation to VegFest for every customer who mentions Rochester VegFest when they apply, or who apply after signing up for more information at the festival. So tell them we sent you!
