VegFund empowers vegan advocates worldwide through grant funding and supporting effective outreach that inspires people to choose and maintain a vegan lifestyle.
Offering food samples to the public is a great way to change notions about plant-based foods and to show how delicious vegan food can be! Food Sampling grants support efforts to introduce people to plant-based foods and alternatives to meat, dairy, and eggs.
For food sampling events, the food offered should be sample-size and cost about $1 per individual. A VegFund grant may reimburse you for the cost of a space at a public festival, street fair, or other public venue where your food sampling event is held. VegFund will cover the cost of purchasing and printing literature. VegFund will consider covering marketing expenses aimed at increasing the attendance for a given project. These expenses may include social media ads (example: Facebook) and flyers or radio advertisements. Grants are awarded retroactively/as event reimbursements.
