Hello everybody,

I am really very new here (and not living in the US, either), but I was thinking about addressing the vegetarian/vegan community for a very selfish reason:

My 16-years old daughter, Kate (a vegan for about 3 years /1 vegan sibling - older brother, me and my husband only vegetarian [still eating some dairy products]/) is planning to participate in a student exchange program /at best she would love to get to attend a high school in Albuquerque, New Mexico/. However, the agencies here /one called AISA - cooperating with SHARE on the US side/ recommended us to try to find a vegan or vegetarian family ourselves...

.. and that is why I am bothering you with this question: doesn't anybody know, by any chance, a vegetarian or vegan family (at best in albuquerque) or person who is planning to participate as a hosting family/host in a student exchange program?

We would really appreciate any help!

Have you tried contacting the local veggie groups / society ?

I guess I am very clumsy about it - I tried several word combinations and abbreviations that popped up at me (such as ABQVEG, VSNM, UNMVEG) and somehow always ended up at this website...

Maybe go to Meetup and enter those parameters.  You may be able to send a group organizer a message.

 

Good luck!

Here in Colorado, the organizer of our veg group is currently hosting a foreign exchange student. I think the best thing to do is contact the state chapter or a meetup group and see if they would be willing to send out a mass email for you to their members. I think the response will be pretty positive!
