"As a vegan of over 25 years, it has been amazing to see the options grow and expand in both Rhode Island and around the country," says RI VegFest's founder, Robin Dionne. "We are looking forward to our third annual RI VegFest, where food lovers of all backgrounds can eat, shop and learn from local favorites and some exciting new businesses."
RI VegFest has partnered with local compost processor, Bootstrap Compost, to help ensure that as much waste as possible will be diverted from the landfill and transformed into useable soil. The event will use as many fully compostable products as possible.
