The National Capital Vegetarian Association (NCVA) is a not-for-profit membership-based organization created to educate the public about the health benefits of a plant-based diet for the improvement of public health. Our goal is to reach as many people as possible – whether or not they are vegetarian.
The public benefits from our work through increased awareness of preventative health care through dietary lifestyle habits; while those following a plant-based diet benefit from improved access to information, connections with like-minded community members, and an improved social infrastructure that supports a plant-based diet.
The NCVA is working to create an environment within which everyone has the knowledge and ability to take control of their own health, prevent health problems from occurring, and live healthier lifestyles overall.
