With the exceptional input of many volunteers, the NCVA is being led by:
Rob – President
Rob has been vegan for more than two years and returned to vegetarianism a year before that transition. He is a Vegan Chef and Vegucator who keeps a keen eye on the latest Vegan & Plant Based food and lifestyle trends. Rob also occasionally hosts the NCVA’s FB Live podcast “NCVA VegCast”. He is dedicated to continuing to build on the NCVA’s roots by continuing to grow membership, gaining new business support opportunities for members to connect with Ottawa Veg community businesses while spreading the message about vegan, vegetarian, and plant-based lifestyles.
