Get to know fellow Mainely Vegans! Joining the Maine Vegan Meetup means so many things to so many people:

• A safe place for those working on foregoing animal products to explore the lifestyle
• A dynamic social network of like-minded folks
• A multi-faceted resource for the support of a vegan diet
• A well-established platform for encouraging vegans to promote the lifestyle in their own way in their community

What started as a dining club has evolved to become so much more. Maine Vegan Meetup can be found organizing or participating in events across the state, ranging from potlucks and restaurant meetups, to VeganDrinks and wine tastings, to annual events like summer’s VegFest and March’s Meatout. We also enjoy partnering with local nonprofits that offer opportunities for protests, leafletting, volunteerism, and other forms of activism and outreach. If you have an idea how we can bring awareness of the benefits of a vegan lifestyle to your community, please let us know!

*All vegans and those interested in animal-free living in Maine are welcome. To be as flexible as possible while showing regard for our mission, we have only three requirements for members: no animal products at our events, respectful conversation, and at least part-time residence in Maine.

*We use our site as an online community to share ideas and suggestions for future events. To facilitate our online community, we ask that you join our group to participate. Membership is free and ANY member can create a Meetup. In fact, we encourage you to do so!

Won’t you join a growing community that is passionate about improving health, standing up for animals, protecting the environment, and living all the benefits of a vegan diet…all in one fell swoop?

Spreading the veggie love...
