COMMUNITY EVENTS


Helping to build and strengthen Toronto's vegan community was one of the reasons why this blog was created. I am a proud supporter of local health events and animal rights initiatives. Most recently Love Wild Live Free was the title sponsor of the Ryerson University Veg Fest which brought together over 30 local vendors and animal rights organizations, with over 3,500 attendees in the heart of Toronto.

The event will feature Toronto’s best gluten-free finds, including a lot of vegan and vegan-friendly food and products.

RonniLyn aims to promote and provide better access to top-quality local gluten-free food, create awareness about celiac disease, and prove that gluten-free food can be super tasty!
