Welcome to Sarah Fay: TVA’s New Veg Guide Coordinator

Please join the Toronto Vegetarian Association to welcome Sarah Fay to the team as the new Veg Guide Coordinator. Sarah brings almost twenty years of experience designing print and web campaigns, and has also worked soliciting sponsors and advertisers, and acting as a sales rep. She has all sorts of tricks up her sleeve, including training in photography, and an MA in Photographic Preservation and Collections Management, with a keen attention to detail. Of course, Sarah fits right in with the team as a long-time vegan who is also mama to a cat and bunny. She is excited to work for an organization that aligns so well with her personal ethics, and we’re equally excited to work with her and see how the Veg Guide will continue to grow and evolve under her wing.

Toronto Vegetarian Association Launches Mobile App: The Veg Guide

Over the past few months TVA has been building something new, to help people discover veg-friendly businesses and events. Through the support of donors, members, and passionate volunteers, we’ve built a new Mobile App, called the Veg Guide.    Here are a few details on the App: When you launch the App, you’ll enter the restaurant directory. It will always sort by proximity, with businesses supporting TVA featuring photos and more detailed descriptions. If you pull down the Directory, you will get a search bar that will allow you to search for specific businesses. Unfortunately partial searches don’t work at this time. Only the closest 25 businesses will be listed and mapped. You can expand the list by refreshing from the bottom. Please help us expand the list by submitting any businesses that are missing through the App. It is built on a platform that does have some limitations, which we are trying to work around. In the coming months, we’ll be exploring additional features, so stay tuned for that and other exciting activities from TVA. Read More
