The Vegetarian Society of Hawaii is a not-for-profit volunteer organization founded in 1990 to promote human health, animal rights, and protection of the environment by means of vegetarian education.

It's among the largest vegetarian/vegan societies in the nation. Once a month they invite a guest speaker to present a lecture or cooking demonstration. All lectures are free and open to the public. Members receive a quarterly newsletter, The Island Vegetarian, as well as discounts at many veg-friendly restaurants and health food stores. Mark Fergusson, Chief Organic Officer (CEO/CFO) sits on the VSH board.  To learn more about VSH, visit the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii (VSH) website.
