A Guide for Local Restaurants to Offer Vegan Foods

Did you know that the NCVA has its own e-book developed to help restaurant owners offer vegan items on their menus? The e-book, written by the NCVA’s past president Pamela Tourigny, is called “Beyond Veggies: A Guide for Introducing Plant-Based Meals at Your Food Establishment”.

Restaurant owners looking to serve vegan foods at their restaurants can download the guide for FREE from our website (see below). Additionally, individuals hoping to encourage more of their local eateries to serve vegan food can print off the guide and present it to their local restaurant owners. Basically, anyone who wants the guide can have it, free of charge!

It would be great to know who is downloading the guide and why, so we ask that interested people answer a few quick questions using the form below before getting access to the download links. Thanks!

Note: If you are interested in volunteering with the NCVA to help us reach out to restaurants and discuss the guide with restaurant owners, feel free to contact us for more information!

Welcome to VegOttawa, the blog for the National Capital Vegetarian Association

The past couple of years have seen an impressive growth in vegan products, services, and restaurants in the Ottawa region.  In this blog, we hope to provide a one-stop resource of all things veg in the nation’s capital.

The National Capital Vegetarian Association (NCVA) is a non-profit, membership-based organization committed to educating the public about the health benefits of eating plant-based foods, and improving the social infrastructure in support of this lifestyle.

The NCVA is working to create an environment within which everyone has the knowledge and ability to take control of their own health, prevent health problems from occurring, and live healthier lifestyles overall.

The NCVA offers a range of social events, participates at fairs and expos, produces educational resources, and works with businesses to make life easier for you.

It is funded solely by donations and partnerships and operated entirely by volunteers.
