This Meetup is for vegans, vegetarians and the veg-curious. We come from all over the greater Portland metro area, East, West, North and South. We do not promote any one political party or religious agenda, nor do we sell anything or recruit for other Meetups. Our group is open to singles, couples, and families of all kinds. We're here for fun, socializing and making new like-minded friends.

In the past, we've posted volunteer events, outdoor events, movies, concerts, plays and author readings. We've had hikes and bike rides, done garden walks, played air hockey at arcades, etc. -- often (but not always) with a veggie meal before or after for those interested. Many of us support animal rights, environmental and human rights issues. If you have other ideas, just ask Mathew or Susan to help us plan events!

Q: What is our main purpose?

A: To join fellow vegans/vegetarians for meals, chat, fun, and anything else under the sun! Or, to be more accurate, under the rain clouds much of the year in the Pacific Northwest. We're NOT centered around political activism, but we're more of a laid-back social group. Our group is for meeting people and doing fun activities in the Portland Metro area.

Q: How do I join?

A: You must have a photo of yourself in order to join. We are primarily a social group and it makes it easier to identify people when we do events. It also makes it more comfortable to invite people to your home for a potluck if you can see who is attending. Do be aware that we reserve the right to not admit new members with inappropriate photos or nicknames.
