Current Volunteer Opportunities


Volunteer signups for 2018 PDX VegFest are now live! Join Northwest VEG at our info and merch table, help at the selfie station or on the fitness stage, face paint, support chef demos, facilitate crafts for kids, staff a recycling station - whatever your interest, we need you. Teen volunteers enthusiastically welcomed with guardian consent.


Represent Northwest VEG at a farmer's market, fair, film screening, or other event. Share about Northwest VEG's upcoming events, answer frequent questions about transitioning to a plant-based diet or direct someone to an appropriate resource, and let the community know how welcoming we are. No experience tabling events? Don't worry; contact us and we will match you with someone experienced until you feel comfortable.

Other Opportunities

NW VEG would not exist if not for our passionate and dedicated volunteers! Thanks to your support, we're able to reach more people and continue doing good. Whether you're looking for a one-time project or a longer term commitment, there's a good chance we have a match for your interests, skills, and goals. Please email us at to get involved! 

  • Join our Dine-out and Happy Hour planning committee: This would involve reaching out to veg-friendly restaurants and bars in the area to set up monthly vegan food and drink centered get-togethers. You would also be responsible for helping to list the events on our meetup page and taking turns attending and supervising the fun!

  • Share a Proposal: Do you have an idea you'd like to see Northwest VEG implement? Fill out this initial proposal and send to Jaclyn for further discussion. We welcome your ideas!

  • Develop our Membership Incentive Program: Work with our Membership Committee to identify and approach restaurants and other veg businesses for potential NW VEG membership, plus aid in the expansion of discounts our current members receive.
