How did you hear about the group?

No answer yet

What are your reasons for joining the group?

It's nice to have an opportunity to go out with folks who understand compassionate choices.

Are you vegan? vegetarian? veg-curious? How long has it been?

I would say I started on this path probably around age 10 or so when I questioned my sisters about what, exactly, is "veal" and what, exactly, is "venison." The answers I got were honest and started me thinking. One sister said "there is absolutely no difference between eating beef and eating venison." She was right and it hit me hard, although she didn't mean for me to take it that way. That was the experience that planted the seed; the journey took much longer but, over the years, as I could make my own choices and especially as I learned more about conditions under which animals become our food, I couldn't....anymore... I have been vegetarian about 30 years and more recent learning has put me on the path to veganism.

What is your favorite place to dine out, and your favorite meal there?

not sure
