This is also our farewell party for Daniel Nguyen, who has been at the forefront of VEGGI’s development since the beginning. He will be transitioning to a new job in Feb 2016. As you know, VEGGI operates as a non-profit and relies on the support of our customers, grantmaking foundations, and people like you.
