Vegetarians and vegans are, unfortunately, still a minority in Melbourne so sometimes we need a little extra help finding each other.

While other groups cater for people who are veg*an for health, environmental and social justice reasons (which are all very good reasons!), Veg for Animals is aimed at people who don't eat animals out of love and respect for them.

We are a social group where members can get together for delicious veg meals, make new friends and generally enjoy the company of likeminded folk in a friendly, non-judgemental environment. This group is not intended as an avenue for prophesying or activism, although if individual members wish to discuss these things that is fine. There are no set topics of discussion.

We aim to be inclusive so anybody who is interested in vegetarianism/veganism but may not be there just yet is more than welcome to join us. All we ask is that out of respect for other members you only eat vegetarian/vegan food at our events.

So, let's get together and have fun while sampling the best veggie food Melbourne has to offer! Hope to see you at a future event.


PS: a great source of info about all things veg is Vegetarian Victoria: They also have monthly social events.

PPS: Pop Up Vegan Eats also have regular dinners, usually every week. Check them out on Facebook at

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
