As a vegan magazine that supports intersectionality and the need for the vegan and animal rights community to address key issues within itself as well as outside, T.O.F.U. aims to spark conversations that will change the world for more than just the animals.


Cover for T.O.F.U. Issue OneT.O.F.U. started in 2007 after the success of two independently published cookbooks and a vegan dining guide to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Based on the feedback and interest in these publications, the founders decided to commit to something more substantial to try and promote veganism as far as possible. Within a couple of issues, the magazine was being read around the world and contributors were providing their voice to fill T.O.F.U. with thoughtful articles, recipes, city and country reviews, art, and more.

Through a number of years, and plenty of internal changes, T.O.F.U. is now a pay-what-you-want digital publication overseen by one of the original founders, Ryan Patey. Still offering a platform for writers around the world to share their voice, the magazine’s audience continues to grow around the world. With a more refined focus on the overlaps of veganism and various forms of oppression, as well as other issues typically outside of the mainstream vegan culture, the magazine now aims to promote change not only within those who still consume animals in some way, but also within those who consider themselves vegan as well.
