* is friendly and welcoming * facilitates people with different levels of interest in meat free food to meet, talk and eat together
* are regular & informal at different venues across Hong Kong SAR * when in restaurants try to facilitate sharing different dishes among all attending * thus usually have all vegan dishes ordered for the group as a 'low common denominator' within the different diets of the attendees
* are volunteers passionate about meat free food who organise on a strictly not-for-profit basis * select only 100% vegetarian restaurants for the roster * visit new restaurants prior to adding it to the meetup roster. This is to evaluate a restaurant's suitability for a meetup * always pay equal share at restaurant meetups. Costs of evaluation visits and to planning meetings with restaurants are borne by the organisers at no cost to the group. The only peripheral recompense for organisers is the option to pay by credit card incurring reward points when a restaurant accepts credit cards * believe in the group to constructively showcase benefits of veg*anism and is not for any kind of financial gain
