Ahimsa lights the way


American Vegan Society and Vance “V for Veg” Lehmkuhl are pleased to announce the 2019 Philly Vegan Awards (PVA). This second biennial event celebrates the best of Philly’s ever-growing, nationally renowned vegan food scene.

Eaters in the Greater Philadelphia area, regardless of whether they are vegan, are encouraged to eat with a purpose. Nominations begin in early October. This year’s PVA offers some new twists on the choose-a-winner formula, which will be announced in September.

The winners will be honored at a celebration at the Friends Center, 1515 Cherry Street, on Friday, November 1 2019, starting at 7:00 p.m. Vance Lehmkuhl will emcee the proceedings. Fran Costigan and other Philly notables will serve as awards presenters.

Tickets are on sale for admission to the awards ceremony and samples of animal-free treats. All proceeds from the event will go directly to support the American Vegan Society’s cuisine initiatives program. Join us as we celebrate the rich tradition of great vegan food in Philadelphia!
