Welcome to the Southwest Suburb Vegan meetup group!

We are not the only veggie group in the Chicagoland area but we are currently the only one in the Southwest burbs. We may not have many veggie restaurants locally but we do not let that stop us from our goals of living a plant based lifestyle or of having a good time together.

We understand that the quest to veggidom is different for everyone and  that not everyone is on it for the same reasons or traveling it at the same pace. You need not apologize to us if you eat a piece of cheese now and then and we do not give out awards for those with the most "pure" diet so come as you are and understand that your efforts and intentions are good enough for us.

Join us and have fun vegging out with us!
