BVStx’s mission is to educate the public, particularly the
African American community, on the benefits of a plant-based diet,
to promote wellness and to influence the community to pursue a
vegetarian lifestyle.About BVStx.
Our Organization seeks to educate our community. Particularly
in meeting and addressing the concerns of chronic and degenerative
diseases. People of color are disproportionately affected by hypertension
BVStx serves to provide for information, resources, and activities
for our members and for those desiring to make the transition
to a plant-based diet. Through a variety of exciting informative
monthly events such as presentations, cooking classes and weekend
getaways, we provide education and support for the vegetarian,
almost vegetarian and the non-vegetarian alike. Attendance and
membership is optional.
BVStx publishes a quarterly newsletter that spotlights a member-owned
business, which allows us to share a part of our family with yours.
In addition, we have a speaker’s bureau where our speakers
address a variety of health-related subjects.
Special programs: Vegetarianism 101 addresses the issues and concerns
of vegetarianism in the first two classes. The following two classes
concentrate on veganism, food combining and other information.
Our Vegetarian Cooking Class is presented in a series of four
classes that cover food preparation, raw foods, textured vegetable
protein and more.
As with most nonprofit groups, volunteers are the catalyst of
the group and are always needed. BVStx members/volunteers are
ultimately responsible for the image and the success of The Black
Vegetarian Society of Texas. We invite you and encourage you to
get involved! Volunteering works! Without you, we will continue
to grow and develop new, exciting programs.Do not miss the benefits
