||Northern Herbivores is the group for vegans! "Vegan" denotes a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude "as far as is possible and practicable" all forms of exploitation of, and cruely to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals. Membership is open to students interested in beginning, maintaining, and/or advocating a vegan diet and lifestyle. Non-vegans are welcome to attend meetings, but we ask that you eat only vegan foods at our events and voice questions and concerns respectfully.
