The Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony April 3 for VegRehoboth.  Members of the chamber’s Meet & Greet Committee were present to welcome the business to the chamber.

VegRehoboth is a nonprofit social and outreach organization that promotes healthy, sustainable, and compassionate living in Rehoboth Beach and surrounding areas. "We're not just for vegetarians and vegans - we welcome everyone, including those who are veg-curious," said Tara Sheldon, vice president and cofounder.

The organization hosts events year-round, including regular monthly Veg Happy Hours and Meatless Monday Munch lunches. Members share friendship and conversation, meet new friends and enjoy great food. VegRehoboth also provides Vegetarian Starter Guides with helpful tips for those transitioning to meat-free eating.

VegRehoboth's featured events are Rehoboth Beach VegFest in the summer and Thanks-Living in November.  This year, Rehoboth Beach VegFest is set for June 13-15, with a free festival at Epworth United Methodist Church Saturday, June 14.

"So many people are interested in plant-based eating - it's better for our health, for the animals, and for the planet. We hope you'll join us," said Sheldon.
