Community Building

Meet others who care about animals, veganism, and food access during the donation drop off period. You’ll also get to meet a Compassionate Action for Animals (CAA) board and/or staff member who will be present.

When you donate you will get a vegan snack as a thank you and have an opportunity to participate in an activity where you can get to know others.  You will also able to learn more about CAA’s work.

Vegan Resources

While there, check out our collection of books, movies, and recipes that can help you learn more about the how’s and why’s of vegan eating. CAA has an extensive library of resources you can borrow. We also have pins, stickers, and coupons you can take as a gift.

Pilot of Monthly Food Drops at the Compassionate Action for Animals (CAA) Office

This event is the kick-off for a pilot of a monthly food drop for the Food Trap Initiative (FTP) at the CAA office. The next drop-off day will be on October 28.

In November we  decide whether to continue hosting them on a monthly basis. If so, they will be on the 4th Monday of the month.

Partnership Advances CAA’s Strategic Goals

This project moves forward the goals set for partnerships in CAA’s 2024-2027 Strategic Plan.

One of our three overarching goals is to:

“Enhance partnerships and collaborations for the well-being of all in Minnesota.

  • Partner with health groups, environmental justice groups, and animal advocacy groups
  • Focus on increasing the amount of plant-based food served in schools, making vegan options the default choice in some other settings, increasing food accessibility, and decreasing food waste
  • Act with an anti-racist, pro-equity and inclusion approach”

Learn more about the strategic plan.

Your participation as an event attendee, volunteer and donor is critical to helping us advance the “well-being of all in Minnesota.”

We look forward to seeing you at this event and others!
