Main Street Vegan Academy (MSVA), located in New York, has announced it will offer free coaching to the public amid the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Around 50 Vegan Lifestyle Coaches and Educators (VLCEs) will support those wanting to ‘enjoy meatless meals or explore the full vegan lifestyle’ throughout June.

‘Reducing harm’

The academy says it also stands with meatpacking workers who are required to work despite the health risk slaughterhouses carry.

In a statement sent to Plant Based News, Victoria Moran, who started MSVA said: “Veganism is about reducing harm and living with a compassionate heart. That compassion extends to both the animals and the humans trapped in a brutal, unsustainable system.

“Whether people are interested in cutting back on meat consumption, participating in a temporary boycott, or exploring the vegan lifestyle more permanently, our coaches are here to support their journey.”

PBN Podcast

Moran recently featured on the Plant Based News podcast, hosted by PBN’s Robbie Lockie, to discuss being a writer, her involvement in the film A Prayer For Compassion, and why she started MSVA.
