Richmond's One-Stop Vegan Resource 🌿

We want to make a vegan lifestyle more accessible by bringing awareness to all the amazing vegan options in the surrounding area through education, as well as starting conversations about animals, the environment, people, and our community.

We are a non-profit that educates the public & professionals about veganism by offering evidence-based resources 📚🌿


🌿 Plant-based Nutrition

After Rosa became vegan six years ago, she and her family got tired of having to commute to Washington, D.C. to satisfy their sweet tooth. Thus, she decided to take her passion for baking and share it with her family and friends in the Northern Virginia area. 🎓 After graduating from Virginia Tech in 2020 with a B.S. in Human Nutrition, Foods and Exercise, concentration in Dietetics, she decided to get serious about her business as it is her dream to open a vegan bakery in her hometown of Centreville.

Although she calls Virginia home, writer and advocate Laura Lee Cascada thirsts for global adventure–from trekking through the Costa Rican rainforest to discovering the hidden beaches of Hawaii, always hopeful for a waterfall at the end of the day. A lifelong lover of nature and animals, she wholeheartedly eats her veggies, treads lightly, and promotes compassion.

Animal Sanctuaries

Hogs & Kisses Farm Sanctuary believes that all animals deserve love and respect, even the ones that typically end up on plates. We will be a micro-sanctuary dedicated to creating a safe and prosperous home for farm animals, who were otherwise destined for food production. Our farm will be open to the community who want personal interactions with our fur family, and for educational vegan events.
