Let’s have dinner together – Wednesday Jan 20, 6:30pm

At our regular Monthly Dining Events, we’ve held catered dinners and had the opportunity to sit together with others while enjoying a delicious vegetarian (egg and dairy free) dinner.  That’s not currently feasible in person at present, and yet people are craving community more than ever in these challenging times, so we invite you to join us online on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.   Let’s have dinner together!

We can share good conversation online, eat dinner or nibbles as you wish while we meet, and of course, we’ll have our popular monthly speech on an interesting vegetarian topic by our president, Amanda.

Please join us! This is a free online event, but please register beforehand for your personal link. We’ll look forward to seeing you there!

1 in 5 Brits choose Vegan Christmas Dinner

Vegan is not just catching on here in America. Other countries are even more enthusiastic. According to a recent poll, 20 percent of people in Great Britain will prepare an entirely vegan Christmas dinner this year. One in five people surveyed said that they would prepare entirely vegan products this year, even if only one of their guests will be vegan.

While 2-3% of Brits are currently vegan, research shows that the number of vegans and vegetarians is growing rapidly, and they look set to make up a quarter of the British population by 2025.  Every year, hundreds of thousands of Brits sign up for the Veganuary pledge to embrace plant-based diets for a month, and the numbers are growing rapidly every year with 72% of them planning to continue with a vegan diet even after Veganuary. The environmental message has really been taken to heart, and of course the British have always been big animal lovers, leading to a lot of interest in how to save both the animals and the Earth.

The side benefit to this is that they will also benefit their health as well. Come on America, we can do this too!
