Community Solidarity's Vegan Thanksgiving Bonanza

Vegans get excited! You're invited to the world's largest Vegan Thanksgiving! And it's right here on Long Island! ...Right off the LIRR for all you city folk too ;)

Every year amazing volunteers like you share over 100,000 pounds of vegetarian groceries with thousands of people at this very special annual Vegan Thanksgiving. We'll be making sure everyone coming receives a week's worth of plant-based groceries, a gourmet vegan feast and they'll be able to select a new wardrobe from a massive selection of free clothing we'll be sharing throughout the afternoon.

Plus if you're one of the first 150 volunteers to signup you'll get a free "Vegan is Compassion" button when you check-in on the day of! 

Why Vegan?

Helping people, animals & the earth

It's about compassion

Every Thanksgiving 46 million turkeys are killed for a holiday that is said to be about "giving thanks" all while 1 in 6 Americans struggle with hunger. Our Vegan Thanksgiving Bonanza on Sunday, Nov. 24th, is about helping people and animals. Community Solidarity is America's largest vegetarian hunger-relief organization. We share millions of pounds of vegetarian groceries with tens of thousands of people every year. By doing so, we promote more compassionate foods, a smaller carbon footprint, and a healthier diet.

Veganism is about compassion for all people, animals, and the earth. And, we want to help you take a stand for all three! 

Compassion is in your hands

Will you join us?

You can stand up with us on Sunday, November 24th as we show the world what a vegan world looks like. Plus, how cool is it knowing that you will be part of the largest Vegan Thanksgiving ever?!?!!!

So again, we're going to be sharing over 100,000 pounds of vegetarian Thanksgiving groceries, clothing and books - and we'll also be dishing up a gourmet vegan feast made up of dozens of delicious appetizers, entrees, desserts, and beverages.

This event will be the largest vegan Thanksgiving ever and it will be the embodiment of a community that is standing in solidarity against hunger and in defiance of poverty and hate. 

This thing is just going to be huge! When we did this last year, it tuned out to be the largest Vegan Thanksgiving ever! This year we're looking to outdo ourselves yet again.

There's no 'I' in 'team' but there is a 'U' in 'Community'

Community Solidarity is America's largest vegetarian hunger-relief organization

Why we only share vegetarian foods

Community Solidarity is an organization that believes all suffering is wrong - human and animal. Alleviating hunger and alleviating animal suffering are not mutually exclusive; we believe they're linked. We believe the suffering of humans can't end if our society continues to justify the suffering of other living beings.

In our view, there's a blind indifference that makes it so easy for some people to overlook the hungry and poor among us. This is the same indifference that makes it so easy for many to overlook the suffering of animals in factory farms. It's an indifference that blinds people into overlooking the environmental destruction created by those factory farms. It's an indifference that blinds people into overlooking an economic system that devalues those poor animals lives while also devaluing the poor and hungry people in our own communities.

Essentially we see human, animal and environmental oppressions as all being the same. In so, we fundamentally believe that the only way to solve one of these problems is to address them all at once. If you feel the same, please consider supporting this worthy cause with your voice and time. All money donated to Community Solidarity goes to help people & animals.
