On Sunday, The American Vegan Society (AVS) commemorated its 50th anniversary with a celebratory garden party at its headquarters in Malaga, NJ. The affair featured an outdoor, plant-based lunch followed by vegan celebrity speakers, including award winning TV host Christina Pirello and vegan summer camp founder Andy Mars, PhD, and live music by five-piece rhythm and blues band Scoville Blues. Lifelong vegetarian H. Jay Dinshah founded AVS in 1960 as a nonprofit organization committed to spreading compassion through vegan outreach education and activism. The group routinely sponsors events including the Great American Meatout and World Vegan Day.
